• 1 12-ounce bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon mint extract, perhaps a bit more to taste


Place the chips in the top of a double boiler and over simmering water, melt the chips (or melt in microwave). When they are about halfway melted, add the oil and the extract. Continue stirring over heat to combine the ingredients well. Remove the mixture from the heat and allow to cool for about 15 minutes, or until the chocolate has started to thicken slightly.

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 simply peel them off the paper and enjoy.

Tip: try other flavors like almond, and vanilla.

Makes about 3 dozen.
