Preparation steps

1.

Preheat the oven to 160°C (approximately 325°F). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2.

Cream the butter and sugar together until very light. Add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition, until very light. Sift together the flour with the cocoa powder and mix into the creamed mixture until smooth.

Transfer the batter to a pastry bag with a plain medium tip and pipe out cookies about 5 cm (2 inches) wide. Bake in preheated oven 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to cooling rack and allow to cool.

3.

For the filling: Chop the chocolate coarsely and combine in a bowl with the chocolate-hazelnut spread. In a saucepan, bring the cream to a boil and then pour over the chocolate mixture. Stir until smooth and let cool until it is spreadable.

Spread a little of the filling on half of the cookies and top with a second cookie to make a sandwich. Press gently to seal. Refrigerate until the filling is firm.

4.

To decorate the cookies: Knead the marzipan on a work surface dusted with powdered sugar. Break off small pieces and roll into thin strands. Tie the strands around the cookies. 

To serve, dust with powdered sugar.
