Dboz's Story

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!

Ingredients

1
bag of chocolate chips
18+
metal teaspsoons (i buy cheap from $2 shop or from asian gift emporiums, a pack of 6 costs $2)
4-5
different kinds of sprinkles,crushed candy cane mints, jelly babies - anything that melts well into hot chocolate and tastes yummy
18+
cellophane bags (from $2 shop or similar)
curling ribbon or ribbons for tying

Directions Step-By-Step

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.

Hi Angela! Thanks for your kind words!

If you're meaning hot drinks - yes, hot milk with a chocolate spoon is delicious! Christmas time comes during summer where I live so we tend to have a chocolate spoon with our morning coffee (naughty, I know, but its the holidays!). Always great to have with hot chocolate and doesnt tend to be as sweet as hot chocolate with marshmallows... although it would depend on what kind of chocolate chips you have.

I hope this helps! :)
