These chocolate-dipped spoons make it easy for anyone to stir up something sweet and indulgent in minutes. Cook time is chill time. I used the most appropriate categories I could find, I hope they are helpful.
1In a heavy saucepan heat semisweet chocolate pieces over low heat, stirring constantly until the chocolate begins to melt.
2Immediately remove from heat; stir until smooth.
3Dip half of the spoons into chocolate, tapping handle of each spoon against side of pan to remove excess chocolate.
4Place spoons on waxed paper; refrigerate for 30 minutes to allow chocolate to set up.
5In a heavy saucepan heat white baking bar over low heat, stirring constantly until baking bar begins to melt.
6Immediately remove from heat; stir until smooth.
7Dip remaining spoons into the melted baking bar.
Refrigerate for 30 minutes to set up
8Place the remaining melted white baking bar in a small, self-sealing heavy plastic bag. Using scissors, make a small opening at one bottom corner of the bag; drizzle one or both sides of the chocolate-coated spoons with the melted white baking bar.
