Come on, admit it. You do it too! Whenever I see a bag of gold coins for sale in a store, I just have to reach out and touch them. The allure is tremendous: gold color, the idea of monetary value and, of course, chocolate. The fascination with these little gems predates the current popularity of the Pirate of the Caribbean movies.In their most basic definition, chocolate coins are disks of chocolate molded into the shape of coins and covered in a gold foil, stamped with an image to resemble a coin. The latest trend in chocolate coins is to have them embossed with designs or personalized messages. These are marvelous for wedding favors, engagement or baby announcements, etc.
