Add the chocolate & hazelnut spread & mix.
In another bowl, mix together the flour, cacao powder, baking soda & salt.
Stir the dry ingredients in to the wet ingredients until combined.
Add the hazelnuts & chocolate chips and fold again.
Chill the dough in the fridge for 15-30 minutes
Preheat the oven to 170°c.
Once the dough is chilled, use a spoon to scoop out balls of dough, spread out evenly on a baking tray. These will not spread very much, so push down into the shape you require.
Cook for 10 minutes, then allow to cool on the trays before serving.
