These chocolate coins are really easy to make, and the ultimate way to use up extra melted chocolate you might have from a baking project. (I’m looking at you, cake pops! More on those later…) They’re super delicious, can be topped with what ever you like, and make the perfect bite-sized post-dinner sweet.
All you need is:
• melted chocolate
• toppings (I used dried cranberries and cherries, raisins, slivered almonds, shredded coconut, and gold chocolate sprinkles)
• a piping bag fitted with a 1/4″ round tip (or just a ziploc bag with the corner snipped)
Line a baking sheet with parchment, and fill the piping bag with the melted chocolate. For things like melted chocolate, that have a very liquid consistency, I stand the piping bag into a large glass – it makes filling it much easier. Also, if you twist the tip of the bag while you’re filling it, the chocolate won’t run out the other end.
Have your toppings on hand, so that you can add them as soon as you’re done piping the chocolate.
Then pipe the chocolate onto the parchment. Once done piping, gently drop the sheet onto the counter top several times to flatten / smooth out the coins.
Add the toppings, and wait for the chocolate to harden. Done!
Super simple, tasty, and no chocolate goes to waste!
