  • Pour the melted white chocolate over the mixture and with a strong long-handled wooden spoon toss well to coat. 
  • Spread the hash on waxed paper and leave until the chocolate hardens.
  • Break up into pieces as needed.
  • Store in an airtight container or pour into gift bags.


*Chocolate melting notes: Melting wafers are chocolate that’s formulated for making candy. They are inexpensive and easy to use. Melt ‘n Mold is one brand available at grocery stores, cake and candy supply stores, and craft stores. Chocolate bars and bakers chocolate melt well. Chocolate chips, however, are formulated to resist melting. If chips are your only option, you can melt them but it’s tricky. Stir in 1 teaspoon vegetable oil per 1 ounce of chips. Microwave on medium power at 30-second intervals, stirring well after each interval, until the consistency is perfect for dipping.
