Chewy Hazelnut Bars

These chewy hazelnut bars have a lot going for them. With a buttery soft texture, the delicious flavour of hazelnuts and a chocolate topping, there’s a lot there to love.

The texture sort of reminds me of blondies but less caramel-y flavoured. This lets the flavour of the hazelnuts shine through and compliments the chocolate beautifully.

Chewy Hazelnut Bars

This is a great recipe year round but is particularly great around the holidays when they can be frozen weeks in advance. They make a tempting addition to seasonal cookie trays.

These are also a great take along to get togethers with friends or for cookie exchanges. Try them with other nuts you prefer or a combination of nuts!

Chewy Hazelnut Bars - A soft and chewy cookie bar with plenty of crunchy nuts and a simple chocolate topping.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 cups toasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  2. Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  4. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, folding to combine well.
  5. Fold in the chopped toasted hazelnuts. (Hazelnuts can be toasted in a single layer on a cookie sheet for 5-7 minutes at 350 degrees F. Roll them on a clean tea towel to remove the skins. Roughly chop with a sharp knife.)
  6. Spread the cookie dough in a parchment lined or greased 9 inch square baking pan and bake for 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees F. (325 for glass bake ware) A toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean. (This recipe is too large for an 8x8 pan. If you do not have a 9x9 pan you can multiply the entire recipe by 1 1/2 and use a 9x13 pan instead if you have one of those.)
  7. Remove from oven and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the surface of the baked squares. Let stand for 10 minutes until the chocolate chips melt and then spread the melted chocolate evenly over the surface of the cookies. Sprinkle with additional chopped toasted hazelnuts if you like.
  8. Cool completely in the pan before cutting into squares or bars. Store or freeze in airtight containers
