Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Pie Bars

Like Nutella or chocolate and hazelnuts together???  If your answer was YES, then you’ll love these cookies!  These Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Pie Bars are a cross between chocolate hazelnut pie, chocolate hazelnut cookies, and chocolate hazelnut truffles.  The recipe combines all the goodness of each for a cookie that is  full of ooey-gooey dark chocolate and crunchy hazelnuts!  I think it’s the best cookie recipe I’ve come up with!  Or maybe until the next recipe. :)  They’ve gotten rave reviews!  You can cut them into small little bite-size cookie bars or for a more formal dessert cut them into larger pieces and top with whipped cream.
