This vegan iced coffee explodes with rich chocolate-hazelnut taste, but it won't weigh you down like a barista-made Frappuccino. Using hazelnut milk and creamer will give you the nuttiest flavor, but if you can't find it, you can substitute another plant-based milk or creamer (it's also great with cow's milk if you don't care about it being vegan). Try chocolate or vanilla almond milk, oat milk or even macadamia milk. If you opt for a non-hazelnut milk, you might want to add an extra teaspoon of chocolate-hazelnut spread.

Bake them in the oven or fry them in your air fryer for a crisp exterior and a gooey, melted center. Don't use pre-shredded cheese here; shred it fresh for the best and creamiest results. Serve with ketchup, marinara, ranch or your favorite dipping sauce.
