Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Bites recipe (Dairy-Free/Vegan/Gluten-Free)
If you're a fan of the salted chocolate trend and you love Nutella, you'll want to try these seriously moreish Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Bites, which are made from just 4 ingredients!

Whoever decided to first sprinkle a teeny amount of salt onto chocolate is a flavour-genius, and I'd like to buy this person a drink (honestly, DM me!). It's one of my favourite flavour combinations when it comes to experimenting with chocolate, but you know what else I also love? Nutella. That classic chocolate hazelnut spread was a childhood favourite of mine, and I always still have a jar of it in the cupboard for those moments when you just need to get a spoonful of it into your mouth. 

I was browsing Pinterest the other day and came across lots of variations of these Chocolate Hazelnut Bites which combine chocolate, salt and hazelnut butter, all together in tempting bite-sized pieces of heaven. Best of all, they're made from only 4 ingredients and help to satisfy a Nutella craving in a much healthier way - just skip the salt if you want! 

Sea Salt & Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Bites recipe (Dairy-Free/Vegan/Gluten-Free)
Ingredients: (makes 8-10)
  • 1 tsp of Coconut Oil
  • 3 tbsp of Hazelnut Butter (I used Meridian)
  • 50g of Dark Chocolate
  • Tiny sprinkle of Sea Salt Flakes (optional)

  • Melt the Coconut Oil and allow to cool slightly. In a small bowl, mix together the Coconut Oil with the Hazelnut Butter and pop into the freezer for a few hours to set.
  • Next, break up the Dark Chocolate into small chunks and slowly melt in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering hot water. Set aside to cool.
  • Remove the set Hazelnut mixture from the freezer, and using two teaspoons, mould small chunks into balls until you have around 8-10 balls.
  • Dip the balls into the melted Dark Chocolate, getting a good even coating all over, and place on a small plate baking tray lined with greaseproof paper. Sprinkle over a tiny amount of Sea Salt Flakes. Return to the freezer to set for another 2-3 hours.
  • Take them out of the freezer 5 minutes before you want to eat them and enjoy! 

Storage: They can be kept in the freezer for up to a month and may start to go soft at room temperature depending on which brand of Hazelnut Butter you have used, so it's best to keep them frozen until you want to eat them.

  1. Ahh these sound great and so easy to make - I'm definitely book marking these to make at a later date. They sound perfect for my whole house - when I made my own peanut butter cups, we all enjoyed them - but deffo need to give hazelnut butter a whirl. There's no better combo than dark chocolate and sea salt too - my ultimate weakness. Hope you're keeping well <3 I really must comment more. Lucy at Lucyy Writes xx
