Superfood Nonpareils Recipe

Last Update: September 28, 2022

When it comes to making recipes healthier without compromise, we’re all about it. Our nonpareils—based on the old-school movie theater candy also known as Sno Caps—are no exception. While these dark-chocolate buttons are typically topped with white sugar beads or sprinkles, we’ve opted for something more fun, and much better for you—superfoods like bee pollen, hemp seeds, shredded coconut, or sesame seeds!

Superfood Nonpareils Recipe

Yield: 30 servings
Active Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour


8 ounces dark chocolate
3/4 teaspoon melted coconut oil

Bee pollen
Sesame seeds
Hemp seeds
Shredded coconut


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Melt the chocolate with the coconut oil in a medium-sized heatproof bowl set over a simmering pot of water, stirring occasionally until smooth.

Spoon the melted chocolate in quarter-size circles on prepared baking sheet. Let cool for 20 minutes, then top each chocolate button with  toppings. Let harden in the fridge 20 minutes. Store covered in the fridge.
