1 cup butter, room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar

Preheat oven to 350 deg. Grease a baking sheet or line it with parchment paper.
Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl. Mix with a whisk to break up any lumps. Beat butter, brown sugar, and white sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in eggs one at a time until completely incorporated. Mix in vanilla and chocolate-hazelnut spread. Carefully fold in nuts and chips.
