So much simpler to make than cookies, these chewy chocolaty bars with hazelnuts can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

  • Portion size 50 servings


  • 1/2 cup butter softened 
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cup hazelnut toasted and coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup jumbo semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup jumbo milk chocolate chips


In large bowl, beat butter with shortening; beat in granulated and brown sugars. Beat in eggs 1 at a time, and vanilla.

Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt ; blend into creamed mixture. Stir in nuts and chocolate chips. Refrigerate dough for 15 minutes.

Using fingertips, spread dough evenly into greased 15- x 10-inch (38 cm x 25 cm) jelly roll pan. Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until golden brown and still slightly underbaked in centre, 18 to 20 minutes.

Let cool slightly in pan on rack; cut into bars while still warm. Let cool completely before removing from pan.
