This can be achieved using the following tooltips label callback function :

tooltips: {
   mode: 'label',
   callbacks: {
      label: function(t, d) {
         var dstLabel = d.datasets[t.datasetIndex].label;
         var yLabel = t.yLabel;
         return dstLabel + ': ' + yLabel + ' €';
      }
   }
}

FYI: This has nothing to do with scales. It would work perfectly fine along with scales

A bit late to the party, but I have recently discovered JavaScript's built-in formatter for currencies, that saves you having to play about with strings and could be helpful here, and is reusable elsewhere in your code!:

const gbp = new Intl.NumberFormat('en-GB', {
    style: 'currency',
    currency: 'GBP',
    minimumFractionDigits: 2
});

Being English I have of course done it in GBP, but I found that changing the en-GB to de-DE and the 'GBP' to 'EUR' worked absolutely fine. Even formatting the decimal points and thousand separators correctly.

EDIT: including how to actually give the formatter a number to format would be useful wouldn't it!

gbp.format(10000); // Returns £10,000.00
