Ready for the cutest little egg stuffer? Whip up a pile of these easy Easter candies and have that extra something special in your baskets this year. I’m always on the lookout for cute items beyond the sacks of supermarket candy and I find that it really costs a pretty penny to get specialty candies. I made these nonpareils and they are so simple, cheap, and cheery, I just had to share.
They look so festive in cellophane bags and they also fit nicely in little plastic Easter eggs. Care to make some for your family?
The steps are practically self-explanatory. Grab a bag of chocolate melting wafers – they’re already in perfect shape and they melt/harden quickly and easily. Spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Heat your oven to at least 200 degrees. You’re going to pop your cookie sheet into the oven for about 1 minute – so you can heat the oven to 350 degrees, but if you’re just making a few candies, it might not even be worth it to heat the oven completely. Anyhow, place the cookie sheet in the oven and watch carefully – as soon as the top of the candies turn glossy, pull them out and coat well with tiny round sprinkles. Place cookie sheet in the refrigerator or freezer for about 10 minutes until the candies have completely re-hardened and you’re done!
I think this qualifies as the simplest candy making I’ve ever done! And they’re adorable! Have fun!
