Halloween Candy Treats: How to Make Halloween Nonpareils

How to Make Homemade Chocolate Nonpareils
Nonpareils Candies, also known to some as "Snow Caps", have been a favorite for years. Each bite offers a chocolate candy coated with sugar beads. Now you can see how easy they are to make in your favorite chocolate and color candy beads.

I'm going to show you two different ways of making homemade nonpareils:

Nonpareils candy taste and looks best with dark chocolate.  That is how they have been made for years. However, they can also be made with both milk and white chocolate wafers as well depending upon your taste. First, the super easy way...,  Melt about 20 chocolate wafers to the correct consistency. Place a piece of wax paper in a cookie sheet. Coat the top of a candy wafer with a food-safe artist paint brush and then dip into the candy beads. Set on wax paper until hardened. It's that easy!

Here is a photo of the melted chocolate in a bowl ready to coat the candy melts and be sprinkled.

Another way to make chocolate nonpareils, which is a more homemade, or rustic way, and gives you a perfectly coated nonpareil each time, is to cover a baking sheet or tray with a layer of nonpareil candy beads. Melt your preferred chocolates and place into a Ziploc bag which has been cut on the corner. Pipe out the size candy you want directly onto the candy beads. Allow some space between each dropping. Gently "drop" the tray from about 6" from the table to get rid of air bubbles. Then gently shake the tray so that the candy is evenly distributed. Allow to harden. Some of the candy pieces will be a little different in size and shape, but that's okay. That is what makes them look so wonderful and truly homemade!

Display on a pretty antique pedestal dish surrounded by Holiday embellishments or place in individual clear bags with a bow around it.


When wrapping your candy pieces in individual bags, the curved bags work best as shown on the left because they have an area at the bottom to put the candy in, and then a curve to tie the bow around. However, if all you can find is the regular rectangular bags, they work just fine too.

So whether you are making homemade chocolate nonpareils for your next holiday party or to sell at your local craft show, have fun, and decorate your bags and display your work proudly, after all, you took the time to make homemade chocolate candies!




Our Favorite Chocolate Wafers for Candy Making is Merckens!!!

Our Other Favorite, Ghirardelli's!

Wilton's chocolate is not our favorite for taste, but if you are on a tight budget, it's great!
