Peanut Butter and Hazelnut Cookies

Recently on the wonderful world of Facebook I came across a short video of how to make 3-ingredient peanut butter cookies. I keep seeing those really short recipe videos and I love them and hate them all at the same time. I love them because they are really well put together, easy to follow, and they inspire me to try new recipes. I hate them because they make everything look easier and less messy than it is…

So after seeing this video I decided to make my own version of the cookies. I had some hazelnuts knocking about so threw those into the mix, along with some melted chocolate – because peanut butter and chocolate may just be the best combination in the entire world. Am I right?

These cookies are quick and easy, not to mention mouth-wateringly delicious. If you have any sense you will make these cookies.

You will need:

1 cup/227g of peanut butter (I used smooth)
1 cup/128g of caster sugar
1-2 eggs
Chopped Hazelnuts
Some melted chocolate (Cadburys, obvs).

Firstly, pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees celsius. Crack and chop the hazelnuts and melt the chocolate.

I have this really cool chocolate melting set. You pop the chocolate into the bowl on the stand above the tea light and it melts away. Long gone are the days of standing over the hob or waiting by the microwave twiddling your thumbs.

Add all the ingredients and stir.

Roll the mix into round shapes and place on a greased baking tray in the oven for 10 minutes. If you like them a little less gooey just bake for a tad longer. As you can see I attempted to make mine into the shape of teapots with this cute cookie cutter I have. I failed.
