Sometimes I just crave these. Although you may know them as "snow caps."
Making them at home is so simple. Get out your double boiler and pour a half bag of Hershey's special dark chocolate morsels in the top. I don't have an official double boiler, so I use one of my sauce pans with a tin mixing bowl. They get all melty in just a matter of minutes so as soon as you see them start to melt, stir and go ahead and remove the pan from the heat.
Next, just pour your sprinkles into a small shallow tray.
Then drop half teaspoonful circles of the melted chocolate right on top, making sure you have a nice bed of nonpareils (sprinkles) underneath. If they are too shallow you won't get an even coverage and they may stick to the bottom of your tray. (Just don't ask me how I know this.)
Then, very gently shake the tray a little from side to side to help level out the chocolate a bit. Some of the circles will turn out a little larger than others, just be careful to leave plenty of room so they don't touch each other. (But don't worry, if any of them happen to accidentally stick together, I recommend you just pop them into your mouth, no sense flaunting our mistakes.)
Then put them in the fridge for about 10 minutes or so and that's all there is to it! I've tucked a few into a little French inspired box for later.
You want some don't you? So did I. It's a bad craving. Here are some more colorful ones I made.

A sweet place to walk off the calories of my bad cravings. N'est-ce pas?
