Chocolate spoons are an easy and yummy gift to give your favorite coffee or hot chocolate drinker!
How do you take your chocolate spoons? Dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, butterscotch? With sprinkles or candies? The combinations you come up with can be endless!
Sweet Chocolate Spoons
1 (6 ounce) package chocolate chips
1 (6 ounce) package butterscotch chips
Colored sugar, sprinkles, candies, etc.
Put chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Melt the chips for 2 minutes on MEDIUM power. In a separate bowl, do the same with the butterscotch chips. Stir chips with a mixing spoon. Let stand 1 minute, then stir again.Watch chocolate CAREFULLY so you do not burn it.
Dip a plastic spoon into either the melted chocolate or the melted butterscotch. Before the melted chocolate or butterscotch hardens on the spoon, sprinkle the spoon with colored sugar or sprinkles, if desired.
Place the spoons on wax paper to harden.
Wrap the dipped part of each spoon in plastic wrap and tie with ribbon to hold wrap in place.
For giving candy covered spoons as gifts, place handle side down in a decorative mug. You may also want to place a single serving flavored package of coffee or hot chocolate with the spoons. Wrap the whole mug and it's contents with colored plastic wrap and secure the top with a ribbon or raffia.
Spoon making tips
*Use heavy duty plastic teaspoons. If you want a gift that is a little more expensive, buy a nice set of metal teaspoon. It all depends on how much you want to spend on the gift.
*Prepare a couple of cookie sheets by covering them with a sheet of wax paper for spoons to harden on.
*Dip the bowl part of the spoon in the chocolate desired. You may want to get fancy and dip in one type of chocolate, let this harden and then dip half way into another type of chocolate. Always remember to ass your candies or sprinkles while the chocolate is warm and still wet.
