When you’re craving a buttery cookie loaded with toasted nuts, these Chocolate Dipped Hazelnut Sandies will do the trick.
Nerd alert: I recently started crafting. That’s right, I’m crafty. In the words of the Beastie Boys, “She’s Crafty!”
I thought it was just a phase, but I’ve really takin’ a liking to the hot glue gun. I think it has something to do with the thin strands of glue that float like floss through the air.
Just the other day, I made a Rudolf wreath out of burlap–red nose, antlers, the works! I even gave him a red and black flannel bow. The dude really is handsome. My front door is so much nicer to look at now.
Do any of you craft, or am I the only dork?
The wreath project prompted the making of a Christmas banner, which then prompted an advent wreath made of live greens and two glitter globes.
It’s getting downright serious.
I’m not one to craft alone. That would silly. I prefer to get my craft on with a group of fellow crafty ladies, which also happen to be my best gal pals. There will be no crafting happening without cocktails and snacks. It just wouldn’t be right.
Since it is the holiday season, we’ve been snacking on cookies. All the cookies! These Chocolate Dipped Hazelnut Sandies are very similar to my Grandmom’s Pecan Sandies recipe. Only I traded the pecans for toasted Diamond Chopped Hazelnuts and dipped them in bittersweet chocolate rather than rolling them in powdered sugar.
They’re buttery, slightly sweet (but not too sweet!), and exceptionally toasty. You’re going to love ’em!
