Nutella Hazelnut Biscotti Cookies #IcedCoffeehouse

International Delight Light Iced Coffee

It's not often that I have a moment to just sit without the distractions of kids, dogs, or a computer in my face, etc., and when I do, you can bet that it doesn't last long. As much as I'd love to run to the local coffeehouse when one of these little opportunities pops up, even occasional indulgences can put a dent in your finances.

Fortunately, recreating the coffeehouse experience at home is easy with International Delight Light Iced Coffee. You can pick this delicious beverage up in both vanilla and mocha flavors at your local grocery store now! This sweet and creamy coffeehouse drink is ready to pour over ice and enjoy whenever the moment strikes.

Nutella Hazelnut Bicotti Cookies

What I particularly love about the new International Delight Light Iced Coffee is that, with 39% less sugar, it has just the right amount of sweetness for my tastes. And with just 100 calories per serving, that means I can splurge on a little treat along with it -- like these Nutella hazelnut biscotti cookies!

Chocolate Hazelnut Biscotti Cookies

Biscotti and coffee just go together like PB and jelly, don't you think? But a traditional biscotti recipe requires two rounds of baking and a little more time that I'd like to invest. These delightfully crispy biscotti cookies are super simple to make and bake in only 10 minutes.

Nutella Hazelnut Biscotti Cookies

Yield: approx. 32 cookies

Nutella Hazelnut Biscotti Cookies


  • 1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Nutella spread
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cups toasted hazelnuts, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and baking soda to combine.
  3. In a large bowl cream together butter, Nutella, granulated sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract.
  4. Stir in flour mixture with a wooden spoon until combined, and the fold in hazelnuts until incorporated.
  5. Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, drop dough onto cookie sheet, spacing each cookie about four inches apart. Flatten each cookie slightly with a fork.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until starting to brown around the edges. Transfer to a wire cooling rack.

Can you tell me if the International Delights has an after-taste? I haven’t tried it yet, but have often thought about it. I just don’t like some of those coffee drinks because of their after-taste.


Tara March 6, 2013 at 11:11 pm

I’m sensitive to that kind of stuff too, Jen, and I can’t detect any odd aftertaste! My favorite is the vanilla.


Whitney @ The Newlywed Chefs March 6, 2013 at 8:11 pm

Tara, I’m drooling over these! Yum!
