Intro: Non-Pareil Candy -- Made in the Microwave
I love candy, and I love making gifts to give from my kitchen, or just to snack on. Whether you're a kid, or a kid at heart, these easy non-pareils (candy sprinkle covered chocolates) take less than two minutes to make, from pantry to plate.
So, let's getting to making some candy!
Step 1: Only Two Ingredients
There are only two ingredients that you'll need:
- chocolate wafers (found at a local bulk store or craft store)
- multi-coloured round candy, sometimes called non-pareils, or hundreds & thousands, or sprinkles
That's all you'll need!
Step 2: Prepping
First, take a microwaveable square pan and line it with parchment paper. Place the chocolate wafers on the parchment paper about 1 inch apart. Zap in the microwave for about 60 seconds or until the chocolate is soft but not gooey or runny.
Step 3: Decorating
Remove pan from microwave and pour non-pareils all over the chocolates. They'll run everywhere but that's ok, because they're in a container; you just want to make sure that they stick to the softened chocolates.
Then place the container in the fridge until set.
Then pop the candy-covered chocolates off the parchment paper and voila! You're done!
You can reuse the leftover sprinkles for your next batch.
Step 4: Voila!
Yes, it really is that easy to make your own candy!
