Make Your Own Chanukah Chocolate Gelt

One of the reasons why children love Chanukah is because they look forward to receiving delicious chocolate gelts. Children love chocolates (and many adults too, for sure). As a kid, I have always looked forward to those sparkling, foil-wrapped chocolate coins my mom would buy during Chanukah.

This Chanukah, show your kids the sweetness of your love by making homemade chocolate gelts.

  • You will need the following ingredients to make choco coins: a cup of milk chocolate or dark chocolate chips, a teaspoon of canola or corn oil, and half teaspoon of vanilla extract. You might also want to prepare some tiny candy sprinkles to garnish the gelt.
  • Put a sheet of parchment paper into a sheet tray.
  • Using a double boiler, melt the chocolate chips. When they are almost melted, add oil and vanilla extract and stir the chocolate mixture continuously.
  • Remove the choco mixture from the boiler and allow it to cool for ten to fifteen minutes.
  • When the chocolate is cool enough to hold, get a handful and shape it into a small ball.
  • Put the chocolate balls into the parchment paper.
  • Flatten the chocolate balls using your palm to shape it into small coins.
  • Refrigerate the chocolate coins for at least thirty minutes to one hour.
  • You can garnish the choco coins with candy sprinkles or wrap it in silver or gold foils.
