I’ve been on a chocolate hazelnut butter kick lately.
Honestly, I don’t foresee that going away anytime soon. And yes, I realize I’m like ten years late on all the hype… but now I definitely get what all the fuss is about. That sh-tuff is goooood.
It’s been making its way into so many things in my kitchen (mostly a spoon and then my mouth, but hey). My favorite so far: rice crispy treats. These don’t even need the chocolate on the outside they are so hardcore delicious. But, the silky smooth coating puts these babies over the top.
Chocolate Hazelnut Crispy Treats
You can stop right here and eat these as is… because as is, they are damn good. Or you can go ahead and melt your chocolate and coconut oil together over a double boiler. Once totally smooth and silky, dip individual squares into chocolate to coat. Let harden up at room temp and then devour.
We successfully polished off all crispy treats in just one day. :)
Also, just fyi: the colorful sprinkles pictured in the photos above are not gluten free… :(
