Easy and addicting, these Chocolate Cherry Hazelnut bars have dried cherries mixed right into the cookie dough. They are then smothered in chocolate and garnished with toasted hazelnuts.



  • 1 recipe for Ultimate Butter Cookie Dough
  • 1 cup dried cherries, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2 cups hazelnuts, toasted, skinned, and finely chopped


  1. Move your oven rack to the lower-middle position and set the oven to heat to 375. Line a rimmed baking sheet (18X12 inch) with parchment paper.
  2. Press the butter cookie dough into the baking sheet to cover the entire bottom.
  3. Sprinkle the chopped cherries over the dough and gently press them in.
  4. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until light golden brown.
  5. Right out of the oven, sprinkle the chocolate chips evenly over the baking sheet and let them melt for about 3 minutes, then spread evenly with a knife or spatula.
  6. While the chocolate is still melted, sprinkle the final layer of chopped hazelnuts on top. Cool on a wire rack for at least 20 mins or until the chocolate has set up. Use a pizza wheel to cut into 1 1/2 inch squares or diamonds.
