- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup toasted hazelnuts, roughly chopped

- In mixer, cream together butter and both sugars.
- Add egg and vanilla. Mix well.
- In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

- Set aside 2 tablespoons chopped hazelnuts and 2 tablespoons mini chocolate chips.
- Stir remaining hazelnuts and mini chocolate chips into dough.
- Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet.
- Press remaining hazelnuts and mini chocolate chips into tops of cookie dough balls.
- Bake for 12 minutes.
- Remove and let for 5 minutes and then move to cooling rack to completely cool.
