A collection of sweet recipes that call for hazelnuts

I usually pride myself on being a sensible shopper. I made lists, prioritize, watch for sales and so on. But when I get to Beachy's, my favorite Amish bulk food store, it's like I can't stop myself from chucking things into my cart. I bring home the strangest things.

Case in point: during my most recent trip, I couldn't stop myself from buying more than a pound of shelled hazelnuts.

Turns out, they're a little too bitter to eat straight out of the bag. So I've been researching sweet recipes I can use them in. Here's what I've found so far.

I really want to try this homemade Nutella that doesn't call for condensed milk or cream:

Or I could make Hazelnut Praline.


Or even Hazelnut Bundt Cake (which would require making a meal from the hazelnuts, but I think I could handle it).




Or maybe I'll just whip up a batch of Peanut Butter Hazelnut Chocolate Cookies. That would probably work.

You make the cookies and the homemade nutella. Then you put the homemade nutella on the cookies. All cookies are better with the nutella on them. I think it's some kind of plot.
