Making Chocolate Spoons:
A Great Stocking Stuffer!
Making chocolate spoons is really quick and super simple! Use them in warm milk to make hot chocolate, or in coffee to give it a yummy flavor.
I usually make chocolate spoons to use as stocking stuffers, or to put in gourmet food baskets. Both young and old adore them!
Last year I attached a Starbucks Coffee gift card to the chocolate covered spoons, and handed them out as teacher gifts.
The possibilites are endless with a homemade chocolate spoon!
Items You'll Need to Make Chocolate Dipped Spoons:
- 12 ounce package of chocolate chips
- Marshmellows (optional)
- Crushed peppermint candy (optional)
- 40 plastic spoons
- Small microwave safe dish
- Wax Paper
- Clear treat bags
How To Make Chocolate Covered Coffee Spoons:
1. Melt the chocolate in the microwave at half power for 1 minute. Stir. If the chocolate is still lumpy at all, continue microwaving at 30 second intervals until smooth. Be careful not to overcook the chocolate...it WILL burn!
2. While the melted chips are still warm, add a teaspoon of shortening per cub of chocolate chips. Stir until blended.
3. Dip each spoon in the melted chocolate. Cover the whole end of the spoon (the portion you eat off of), and about one inch up the handle. If the chocolate starts to harden while you're working, place it in the microwave for another 30 seconds at 50 percent power.
4. Place the coated spoons on wax paper to set. If you want to add marshmellows (to make "hot cocoa on a spoon"), or crushed peppemint candies (to make a peppermint chocolate flavor), now is the time to do so. Once they've hardened, put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes to make them easier to work with.
5. Put each spoon in a clear treat bag and tie a ribbon around the handle to cinch it closed.
