Keyword: Chocolate Nonpareils
Servings: 30 1" candies

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces good quality semi-sweet chocolate see note
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon good quality vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup nonpareils

Instructions

  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour nonpareils over parchment paper.
  • Place chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl. Heat at 50% power in 30 second increments, stirring well after each increment. Continue heating/stirring until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
  • Once smooth, stir in vanilla extract.
  • Place chocolate in a pastry bag and cut tip off end of bag. Pipe ~1" sized rounds on top of nonpareils. Let sit for at least 1 hour to harden. You may also move the baking sheet to the freezer to allow chocolate to harden more quickly.

Notes

I use Ghiradelli semi-sweet chocolate. However, you could also use milk or dark chocolate, or another brand of chocolate.
