Cracked chocolate-nut cookies – craquelé

The cookies got their name from the tiny cracks on the white surface. These are beautiful and delicious  chocolate sweets , crunchy on the outside and softer on the inside, perfect for the first cup of  coffee  for  breakfast or afternoon tea. They are slightly firm after a few days, but still retain their wonderful flavor.

Their preparation is quite   simple  and  quick : however, it is very important to respect the time left to leave the dough in the refrigerator to achieve the final ” craquelé ” effect .


about 40-45 cakes

  • 350 g of flour
  • 300 g of brown sugar
  • 120 g butter / margarine
  • 80 g of hazelnuts
  • 60 g of dark chocolate
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 80 ml of milk
  • 30 g of unsweetened  cocoa
  • 2 flat teaspoons of baking powder
  • powdered sugar

To make chocolate nut cakes , start by chopping the dark chocolate and melting it. In a bowl, beat the butter with brown sugar until fluffy.

Add the remaining ingredients one at a time (sequentially), being careful to mix them well before adding the next ingredient: eggs, melted chocolate , milk and cocoa sifted flour, and baking powder. Finally, add the coarsely chopped hazelnuts and knead for a few seconds until everything is well combined.

Wrap the dough in cling film and set aside in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. 

After this time, put the powdered sugar in a bowl and pull out the dough. Take a piece with a spoon for one cookie, make it a ball the size of a walnut and coat it thoroughly in powdered sugar

Put them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper at small intervals. Bake the cookies in an oven preheated to 180 degrees for about 25 minutes.

Then cool down and enjoy your cookies!
