Yummy Treats for Work

It’s been a crazy first quarter at work and I finally got around to baking some treats for my team using my BRAND NEW KitchenAid! Wow, I didn’t know what I was missing out on without one. 😀 I was craving chocolate and browsed my Pinterest Board and found a recipe with my favorite sweet combo—chocolate and hazelnet. You have got to try this Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Bars recipe—everyone loved them! Thanks to Maria!

Instead of using a pan, I pulled out my Wilton Brownie pan that my sister-in-law gave me for Christmas last year. It worked great! If you use something similar, make sure to reduce the baking time, I left mine in for about 17 minutes instead of the 25-30 min the recipe calls for and they turned out perfect. I took them out of the pan right away and let them cool on a rack. Be sure to spray that pan thoroughly!

Also, let me tell you, this was the first time I have ever browned butter and OH-EM-GEE! It smelled SO good! I also loved the taste of the sea salt on the cookies. I will definitely make these again. Since I am a big fan of hazelnut, I will probably do 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of chopped hazelnuts next time. I used Chiradelli semi-sweet chocolate chips but I would love to make a dark chocolate version. These tasted great right out of the oven too.
