7 Tidbits about Homemade Chocolate Nonpareils
1. I have wanted to make Homemade Chocolate Nonpareils in Green Bay Packers’ colors for a long time. My hubby loves them, although he is partial to dark chocolate; next time honey.
3. I am not particularly fond of the name of this sweet treat. Nonpareils are the tiny colored sprinkle balls, but apparently, they are also a flat chocolate candy covered in nonpareils. Confusing? Yes.

4. You can make these chocolate candies with any color nonpareil sprinkles that you fancy. I obviously chose my football team colors (green nonpareils and yellow nonpareils) which could also work for St. Patrick's Day, but these would also be awesome sauce in red and green nonpareil sprinkles for Christmas, pink and red nonpareil sprinkles for Valentine’s Day, or pastel nonpareil sprinkles for spring/Easter.
The sky is the limit when it comes to nonpareil sprinkles and Homemade Chocolate Nonpareils.
6. Homemade Chocolate Nonpareils are GOOD. They're the perfect mix of chocolate with a little bit of crunch and are so festive no matter what color nonpareil sprinkles you use. They also make a great snack; sweet treats can totally be a snack. #justsaying
7. The easiest way to make these chocolate candies is to put your nonpareil sprinkles in a large shallow lid or a small jelly roll pan and to use a piping bag filled with melted chocolate. No muss. No-fuss.
Now it's time to get to chocolate candy making.
