Mint Hazelnut Chocolates

These are quick little chocolates that I whipped together real quick one evening. I was craving just a plain chocolate but we don’t have your typical candies lying around the house anymore. No, unfortunately no Reese’s, Hershey’s Kisses, etc. But out of necessity, these little devils were born. Another perfect gift idea for a friend or loved one.

1 regular package of chocolate chips (I like Enjoy Life)
1 tsp mint extract            
½ regular package of mint chocolate chips (if you can find them, if not just use regular chips)
½ cup finely chopped plain hazelnuts
1 tsp almond milk
¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • Melt chocolates and mint extract in the microwave (careful not to scorch them).
  • Once melted, stir in almond milk and coconut oil until smooth. Add in nuts.
  • Spoon into mini cupcake pans lined with mini cupcake papers. Freeze until set.
    • Note: We like to leave this in the freeze and eat them cold!
