How To Make hot chocolate spoons

  • 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.
