These are delightful chocolaty cakey bites!
This is a fantastic one bowl, mix everything together type of recipe.
I found this easy fast recipe on Warm Toasty Muffins and when I realised I had half a jar of hazelnut spread in the cupboard I couldn’t resist trying them.

Mely said they’d be made in a flash and they were!
Ingredients : makes about 30
160g plain flour
1/2tsp baking powder
225g hazelnut spread (or Nutella)
1 lightly beaten egg
How to: Put everything together in a large bowl and using a fork and then your hands, mix everything together until you have a sticky dough. With lightly floured hands break off small bits of dough and roll into balls, place the ball on a baking tray. Leave a bit of space round each ball as they spread slightly during baking. There is no need to flatten the balls, just put them in the oven at 180°c for 10 mins and hey presto!
These keep in an air-tight tin for several days and were even very good after a week when they’d dried out a bit and became really crunchy!
If you prefer flatter, less cakey biscuits, flatten the balls slightly with a fork before baking, they’re equally good this way!
