These chocolate hazelnut hearts help you get your chocolate fix in no time flat. Not only are they rich, creamy, and chocolatey, they're made with raw cacao and hazelnuts, so they taste like a better-for-you version of Nutella. If there's leftover "Nutella" after you make the chocolates, try it on toast, in oatmeal, or on top of vegan waffles and pancakes!
