Whipping up these endlessly customizable (and super giftable!) chocolate coins is almost as easy as melting chocolate in the microwave. All you have to do is melt, plop, and top with whatever dried fruit, nuts, or seeds you have in your pantry.
Get the recipe for homemade chocolate coins:Print
- 8 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Dried fruits like mango, cranberries, raisins, and/or apricots, roughly chopped
- Nuts such as pecans, peanuts, walnuts, almonds, and more, roughly chopped
- Coconut flakes
- Sesame seeds
- Candied ginger or orange peels
- Flaky sea salt
- In a heat-safe bowl, microwave chocolate chips in 30-second intervals, stirring to mix in between heat sessions until fully melted, about 1-2 minutes total.
- Let chocolate sit for 5 minutes, then drop into 1-tablespoon circles (coins) onto a sheet pan lined with parchment paper.
- Before chocolate sets, add any toppings you like and gently press down to help it stick.
- Chill on the fridge for 30-60 minutes or until chocolate is fully set. Gently remove chocolate coins from the parchment and serve.
