“This recipe is inspired by a similar version of a recipe from Julie Van Rosendaal's "One Smart Cookie." Perfect with a cup of coffee. Be certain that you like hazelnuts before preparing this recipe; the nutty flavor is distinct!! If you want a stronger coffee flavor, use espresso, otherwise I recommend a strong dark blend”
