The French term for button candies is nonpareils, which means "without peer." No one who remembers them from their youth would argue with that appellation. Nonpareils-dark chocolate buttons topped with sugar beads-are the caviar of childhood.

    This recipe is great if you're looking for an easy-to-make candy that is both attractive and tasty. Be careful not to wait too long to put the nonpareils on or they will not stick. I found that 20 minutes was too long, for I ended up with a tray of half-covered chocolates.

    To get perfectly covered chocolate each time, cover a baking sheet with a layer of the nonpareils. Place melted choclate into a pastry bag or ziploc bac bag to pipe out the size you want each time! Enjoy!

    Beautiful candy, easy recipe and so easy-definitely wait the 20 minutes the nonpareils will stick like magic-if you rush and put the nonpareils on early the chocolate will spread!
