3 ways to use Wilton Mint Drops

Have you heard of mint non pareils or Wilton mint drops? They have turned into one of my favorite little snacking treats! You may have seen them in a candy dish at weddings. In fact, I’ve had a hard time finding them, but have found success in the wedding aisle at Michael’s craft store. I first became enamored with this sweet delicacy a year ago at a conference. There was a candy dish filled with the giant Non Pareil Assorted Mint Chocolate, (the base is the size of a nickel).

I had a little baggie filled with them , and I snacked on them throughout the day. They are white chocolate and minty, with a bit of texture from the sprinkles. I’ve since found the mini size, Wilton’s Mint drops

I decided I wanted to try them in a few of my favorite recipes, and I’m here to say:  they turned out quite delightfully!

I first tried them in my favorite soft batch style chocolate chip cookies  recipe (from Picky Palate), and it was delish!

I then tried the mint drops with some white chocolate popcorn, and another hit!

Lastly, I put them inside the batter and on top of my new favorite Fudgy Vanilla Brownies, and loved that, too!

The color adds a fun touch of spring and happy to any treat!

I’ve decided I’m just going to keep these around the house along with my standard white, milk, and semi sweet chocolate chips.
