Recipe by MarieFromSweden
This recipe is given in grams; it's from a BBC food show. The dough can feel a bit crumbly but it's no problem. These are really good and chocolaty. I like to roast my hazelnuts in the oven. You make them fast and you can eat more of them since there is no butter in them good for lactose intolerants!!

Amazing - my husband made this. He reduced the sugar to 146g and used walnuts for the nuts and then used semisweet chopped baking chocolate that had 6 g of sugar per serving. I fell in love with my man all over again... A keeper (the recipe and the hubby!)
