Another variation is to use dried apricots and dip them half way in melted chocolate of your choice.

Makes about 3 dozen.


  • 1 (12 ounce) bag semisweet chocolate chips *
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract, or a bit more to taste


  • * If watched carefully, you can melt the chocolate in a microwave oven.
  • Place the chips in the top of a double boiler and over simmering water, melt the chips.
  • When they are about halfway melted, add the oil and the extract.
  • Continue to melt the chips, stirring to combine well the chocolate, the oil and the extract.
  • Remove the mixture from the heat and allow it to cool for about 15 minutes or so, or until the chocolate has started to thicken just a bit.
  • Place a sheet of parchment paper on a sheet tray, and using a soup spoon, pour coin shaped discs onto the parchment paper. Use all of the chocolate to make "coins."
  • Allow the coins to harden and then peel them off the paper and enjoy.
  • Another method of forming them is to peel off a large piece of plastic wrap and lay it over a minin muffin pan. Push it into each cup and pour in the chocolate to the depth you desire.
  • When cooled, just pop them out
