Salted Chocolate Hazelnut Toffee Bites

Universal rule of life #5289174:

Everything gets better when covered in salted dark chocolate.

Except for my thermodynamics homework, which still sticks even after being doused with a creay dreamy smooth chocolate ganache. Nothing we can do about it, sadly.

But for the rest of things? Heck yes. Get some chocolate, a tiny bit of sea salt and a sweet hazelnut filling and you’re good to go. 101% guaranteed to make your day better, your mood brighter and your dog lovelier.

Okay I might have just made up that last part but isn’t it true that our furry pals get more adorable day by day? I think it’s like an universal law or something.

Anyway! These salted chocolate hazelnut toffee bits? Yes yes and yes! They will totally make your day/week/month/year EPIC. I mean, a sweet and creamy date-hazelnut filling covered in a crunchy salted chocolate ganache? How could that not be the bestest thing ever?

Hint: it couldn’t.

I’d been wanting to make something like these ever since I saw these absolute gorgeous Salty Chocolate Date Caramels from Heartbeet Kitchen. I mean, how could I not go crazy over vegan candy right?

I decided to go for a hazelnutty version since you guys know how much I love these lil’ nuts aaaaand use the ingreedients I had on hand. And boy, did these turn out more than alright!

Sweet and creamy on the inside, salty and crunchy on the outside. And completely healthy too! Yay for nutritious ingredients and the fact that I can totally eat a dozen of them. Although, to be completely honest with you guys… I can pretty much eat dozens of ANYTHING as long as it comes from a plant.

Have you seen that Mean Girls scene where Cady goes all like “the limit doesn’t exist”? Oh well, it’s my friggin’ hunger drive she’s talking about.

I would be lying if I said I haven’t just devoured a bowl of mexican food which took up half of our dining table for dinner. How do these girls who think that you can make a meal out of a potato alone exist??? (I’ll take like 7 and I’ll probably add some for food on top too YES). These people who brag about how little they can eat? Ha ha ha eat your lettuce and be sad and then… HAND ME THE LETTUCE (because lettuce is glorious really) AND A BAG OF POTATOES and keep being sad.

    Hi! These look amazing! I want to make them and I was wondering what type of coconut milk you used? Thanks so much!

      I use canned unless stated otherwise (it just taste so much better!). Both work, but canned is better since it gives some toffee flavour. I’m not a big fan of the carton one haha 😉 x
