Nonpareils Made The Easy Way!

Making your own nonpareils is lots of fun and easy! Once you know how, you'll be making them for family, friends and for gifts. Here's how!
Supplies needed to make nonpareils.

Supplies Needed:
*Remember, you can use any size cake pan with a lip. Any color nonpareils and you can use milk, dark, white or any color chocolates.

How to make nonpareils:
  1. Fill the bottom of a cake pan with with nonpareils. Make sure there is a thick layer, approx 1/2".
  2. Melt chocolate in a microwave. We suggest 1 lb. at a time in a plastic bowl on 1/2 power for 30 seconds at a time. Stir after each 30 seconds until chocolate is melted. Be sure you do not over heat the chocolate or it will get thick and lumpy.
  3. Squeeze bowl and gently pour melted chocolate into squeeze bottle.
  4. Squeeze dots of chocolate on top of nonpareils until there is no more room.
  5. Place pan into freezer for approx. 5 to 10 miniutes.
  6. Remove completed nonpareils from pan, and shake pan to flatten nonpareils.
  7. Repeat.
  8. When pan is in the freezer chilling, place squeeze bottle with melted chocolate in a pan of hot water. this will keep the chocolate melted until you're ready to use it.

*If you want to make larger nonpareils just squeeze out larger circles!
Clean up:  (It's just as easy)
  1. Empty any extra chocolate from squeeze bottle back into plastic bowl that you melted your chocolate in.
  2. Put bowl and squeeze bottle into freezer until hardened.
  3. Squeeze bottle and all the chocolate that is stuck to the side will come off and empty into a bag.
  4. Squeeze bowl and all the chocolate will crack away and put that into a bag.
  5. Store chocolate at room temperature until the next time you make candy.
