Chocolate Covered Spoons

14 December 2011

I have been dipping everything in chocolate that isn’t nailed down.  I found this fab dipping chocolate from Ghirardelli at Costco or Sam’s... I don’t remember which.  It tastes A-mazing and it’s so easy to use.  I’m never going back to chips!  Ya hear me?  Neverrrrr.

I love chocolate dipped spoons.  You just stir into hot chocolate for extra chocolatey goodness, into coffee, or a latte to make a mocha.  We did two flavors, milk chocolate and peppermint chocolate.

Both are delish and crazy easy to do.

You’ll want some heavyweight plastic spoons.  Melt your chocolate in the microwave.  Do it at half power in 30 second increments, stirring in between until melted.  I like to use my 2 cup glass pyrex measuring cup.

Dip your spoons coating the back and filling the well with chocolate.  Allow excess chocolate to drip off.  I used a lid to prop up the spoons as they were drying so the chocolate stays even in the spoon.  Allow to dry OR add fun things to your spoons.

We started with crushed Bob’s peppermints.  These are pretty much beloved by all in our family.

I found these cute sugar snowmen {made by Wilton} and added those to the spoons along with some cute pearlized sugar ‘snow’ sprinkles.

Stick in a bag and tie with a ribbon.  These are great to add to a coffee mug or just tied to a coffee giftcard.

If you're referring to that giant block, better stock up. It's seasonal. I bought four the last time I was there (Sam's). Last year I was crazy looking for it to discover they only have it at Christmas.

these are so great and would make great little gifts for teachers ect. I'd love to know the brand of chocolate you used. I just have to make these! So cute, I'm glad I found your blog from pinterest.
