So it’s nuts and chocolate twice in one week.  I just can’t help myself- what could be better?  But if yesterday’s post was maybe a little more than you want to take on right now, this one is just perfect for a Tuesday.

Do you remember these cookies?  To me they are an absolute holiday classic.

When I used to work as a pastry chef at a catering company, I made a version of these every week for the cookie trays and they were my absolute favorite of all the (many) things that were served.  Their family recipe was almond and Sambuca which maybe sounds a little strange?  To put chocolate and licorice together?  But I promise you it was fantastic.

Anyhow, this time around I decided to share something a bit more traditional.  And it’s also seasonal!

We’ve got a crap-ton of clementines at our house around the holidays, so I amped up the flavor of the traditional Chocolate Crinkle Cookie with some citrus zest and a good dose of hazelnut as well.

The recipe can be found over at Better Homes and Gardens’ Delish Dish blog!  I’m super psyched to be guest posting for BH&G today.  I hate to sound like a broken record but it really is my favorite publication.  I’d be so grateful if you’d click over and read, comment, share, pin, etc. so we can fool them into thinking that I’m a super awesome rockstar blogger with a legion of die-hard fans.

Thanks you guys!  xoxo
