These were pretty good but I couldn't really taste the nutella in the cookie. I prefer the normal chocolate chip cookie taste. The cookie turned out pretty flat so I eliminated the drizzle. I also didn't have hazelnuts on hand so just eliminated them. I'll try this again with all the ingredients to see if this improves overall taste.
