• 120 g dark chocolate
• 120 g butter
• 300 g sugar (only used 200, was sweet enough!)
• 3 eggs, beaten (oh, I guess I forgot to beat the eggs...)
• 120 g flour
• 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder
• 120 g cocoa powder (that also seemed a bit much, so I guesstimated it)
• 120 g milk chocolate, cut into bits (used some more dark chocolate, milk is for losers)
• 150 g hazelnut paste
What to do:
- Preheat the oven to 170 º C. (You can do this later, the mixture has to be in the fridge for an hour, so it seems silly to preheat the oven now.) Melt the dark chocolate with the butter over boiling water, or au bain-marie, as the French call it. (Melted chocolate and butter is DELICIOUS!) Let it cool down.
- First add the sugar and the eggs. Then mix flour, baking powder and cocoa powder and stir.
- Add the chocolate to milk. Let the dough about 1 hour tightly in the refrigerator. (Perfect, Google translate! This is what you're supposed to do: Add the milk chocolate chunks. Let the dough get firm in the fridge for an hour.)

- Take a teaspoon (OH, a TEAspoon, that's why my cookies were giant...) of the dough and make it into a ball, put this on a baking sheet lined with some baking paper (probably some fancy names for this). Repeat with the remaining dough. Gently place the balls 5 cm apart and put them in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

- Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool. Spoon some hazelnut paste on one half of the cookie and place another cookie on top. Serve the cookies with coffee or vanilla ice cream. (I didn't do any of this, besides taking them out of the oven. They went in my face right away, plain and simple.)
