What the heck are Leftover Chocolate Bites? When I make my chocolate candies, I inevitably have leftover melted chocolate. I can do one of three things. I can pour it into ice cube trays and allow the chocolate to harden to use for another time. If I have enough I can make a chocolate bark, or I could make these super easy leftover chocolate bites.
So here we go.
Leftover Chocolate Bites
Ingredients: It will make as many as supplies will allow.
- Leftover melted chocolate of any kind
- Bits & pieces of a variety of nuts, dried fruits or candy pieces.
Using a spoon, create 1½ to 2-inch circles of the melted chocolate onto a parchment lined baking sheet. Evenly place a few bits and pieces of nuts, dried fruits or candy pieces on the top of each chocolate circle. Press them lightly into the warm chocolate. Allow the leftover chocolate bites to set.
When the leftover chocolate bites have hardened, remove them from the parchment sheet and place them in an airtight container. They will keep for up to 3 weeks; if they last that long.
Notes: I’ve made these with white, milk, dark and extra dark chocolate. I’ve also used all manner of bits and pieces of leftover nuts etc. If you prefer, use all the same items. I prefer them bite size, but you can make then larger if you like. A smaller size works very nicely as a little treat with coffee. Be as creative with any combinations you may enjoy.
Ok, that has to be the easiest chocolate candy ever. They are very kid friendly. Kids have a blast creating their own versions. Whoever makes them, you simply can’t go wrong and they’re fun to make. I’ll often add them to my gift box of homemade candies as a bonus.
