These chocolate spoons are so festive for this time of the year. They would make great last minute stocking stuffers...or you could keep them all to yourself! I still haven't quite decided what I'm going to do. These are perfect for anyone who loves taking their coffee or hot cocoa to a whole new level.
For these, I use the plastic spoons that mimic actual flatware. I normally buy them from Sam's Club, but you can get them from most large stores. I think they really dress them up and give them an elegant look. And, we all know that I like pretty things!
If you're giving these as a gift, I suggest using cellophane bags to wrap them. You should probably add a tag that says what they are and what's in them depending on the toppings and add-ons that you use.
I, personally, really like dipping them in crushed candy canes after the Chocolate. I just run them through the food processor for a few seconds. Its so easy and adds a festive touch!
Chocolate-Dipped Spoon Recipe
1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 Tbsp Oil
Plastic or Wooden Spoons
Optional toppings and add-ons (peanut butter, crushed candy canes, coarse seat salt, sprinkles, chopped nuts, coconut, crushed pretzels, and caramel dipping sauce)
1. Melt the Chocolate Chips and add the Oil if necessary to thin.
2. Dip the bowl of the spoons into the Chocolate.
3. Add toppings to decorate.
4. Allow to dry on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper. Enjoy!
*** If using peanut butter or caramel sauce, dip spoons in them first, then coat with the chocolate. ***
I hope that these add a little something extra to your holiday cheer! Have you ever made these before? What's your favorite way to decorate them? If you make these, please share a photo on Twitter using #Alacuisinellc.
