Sharing is caring!

Hazelnut Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies are mini-size, soft cookies with a subtle chocolate hazelnut flavor sandwiched between them.  These adorable little bite-sized cookies are deliciously melt-in-your-mouth, baked in 8 minutes, and stay fresh for days!  So YUMMY!

As always, peanut butter and chocolate have had a wonderful love affair for years.  The flavor of peanut butter and chocolate were made for each other.  Don’t you think?

I’m in love with these little cookies!  

When they’re baked and cool, they’re ready to be sandwiched with hazelnut chocolate in the middle.  I used hazelnut chocolate spread (an organic brand) or you can use Nutella.

Nowadays, most box cookies on the market contain unhealthy ingredients such as palm oil, soybean oil, and high fructose corn syrup.  No thanks!

Easy to Make, Bake and Sandwich together…

Loaded with wholesome ingredients, like creamy peanut butter, brown sugar, 1 egg, and baking soda, makes them the easiest cookies to make and bake! 

A few weeks ago, I posted a similar recipe for my 5-Ingredient Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich Cookies which, BTW…  turned out to be a 5-STAR recipe!

So I decided to make them again, only this time with our favorite chocolate hazelnut as the filling. 

And if you already have a jar of Nutella or any brand of hazelnut spread along with a jar of creamy peanut butter in your pantry, then you can whip up a batch of these Hazelnut Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies in no time.

My Hazelnut Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies are made with only 5 ingredients!

  1. creamy peanut butter

  2. one egg

  3. brown sugar

  4. baking soda

  5. hazelnut spread or Nutella

Only 5 minutes to make the batter, then start rolling into balls!  If you prefer, you can refrigerate the batter for about 10 minutes to harden, so you can roll into balls easier. 

I decided to make them into bite-size cookies.  Rolling the cookie dough into smaller balls, then pressing down slightly on top of each one with a small fork.  

They bake for 8 to 10 minutes. 

Once they cool down, you can sandwich them together with a small teaspoon of hazelnut spread in the middle.  YUM! 

Super easy…

 

Storing and Freezing:

  • Line an airtight container with wax or parchment paper.  Place the cookies in a single layer, separate layers with a sheet of wax or parchment paper. 

  • Freeze cookies for up to one month. 

  • To Thaw: simply arrange cookies on a serving plate, and serve.  They will thaw quickly at room temperature, and in less than 15 minutes.

Whether you make these cookies bite-size or make them larger, they will keep their freshness and texture for days.    

Best of all,  I love having them around as a little snack when I need a little energy boost. 

And, boy – every time I make these sandwich cookies, they disappeared just as quickly as they come out of the oven.  

These Hazelnut Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies are a winner!  And the recipe is a keeper…try them!  

ENJOY!!

    It’s funny, I love hazelnuts but I don’t like Nutella! I’m already thinking a chocolate ganache filling would be perfect 🙂
