  • 250 g dark chocolate
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract


  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Chop up the dark chocolate and place it in a bowl.
  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave with bursts of 2 minutes while stirring.
  • Once the chocolate is completely melted, add in the vanilla extract and stir.
  • Spoon the mixture into a zip lock bag or a piping bag. Snip off the piping bag and pipe dots onto the prepared parchment paper.
  • Let the chocolate chips harden completely before transferring them into an air tight container.


  • Working quickly is essential to avoid the chocolate hardening before it's piped onto the parchment paper.
  • When using a double boiler, make sure no water gets into the chocolate as it can cause the chocolate to seize.
