Dboz's notes for this recipe:
With Christmas just around the corner, the kids and I have been practicing how to make hot chocolate spoons.

As usual we love testing the end result!

These spoons make cute little gifts for anyone including work friends, neighbours and maintenance staff to the bus driver and postie!

Directions

1
Prepare your activity area making sure:

Spoons are dry and ready to dip
Sprinkles are set up in bowls or shakers
Trays are lined with baking paper ready to lay chocolate spoons
2
Melt chocolate until silky and smooth
3
While the chocolate is still hot, dip the round part of the spoon into the chocolate. As you lift it out, spin the spoon slowly for a minute or two until it is a set enough to hold the sprinkles.

If you sprinkle the chocolate too early the sprinkles will just drip off the spoon! As chocolate cools down you wont have to spin the spoon very long before you can sprinkle.
4
Lay the covered spoons on a tray and leave to set.
5
Put each spoon in a cellophane bag and tie with a ribbon or whatever tie you want to decorate with!

These spoons are great for the kids (or yourself!) to make up as gifts or a nice treat for home.

I love that you are using a real spoon vs. a plastic one. Many second hand stores will have odd spoons for sale and what a great way to use them. I am pinching this idea, thanks for sharing.

I like to use red or green plastic spoons at Christmas & the red & green sparkles & tie with Christmas ribbon, cute when used as name tags at a party.
