Hello! Been laying low a bit this last week- family illness plus general Christmas busyness has meant that my focus has been elsewhere, although we’ve still found time to make these fabulous chocolate spoons! Ideal for stirring and melting in warm milk, they make a great stocking filler, or attractive when displayed in a pretty small vase/mug.
Freddie and Sasha loved helping me make these, although there was more chocolate going in their mouths as opposed to actual decorating- a definite chocolate detox will be needed come New Year!
You will need:
- Mini disposable wooden spoons
- Milk and white Chocolate for melting
- Decorations – I like silver balls, multi-coloured sprinkles, little stars, edible glitter… you name it, it can go on a spoon!
- Coloured pens, or stampers for decorating the spoons
- Clear celophane
- Decorate the handles of your spoons, using pens or your rubber stampers. I used some Christmas-themed rubber stamps that I’ve had for years.
- Lay out your spoons on a tray (must be able to fit in your fridge!) on top of some baking paper.
- Melt both the milk and the white chocolate in separate bowls.
- Dip your spoons in the melted chocolate of choice, and then place on the baking paper.
- If you want to be creative and use two types of chocolate for each spoon, you can then drizzle the other chocolate i.e. white chocolate over the milk chocolate once this has cooled a little (so they don’t mix together and create a horrible mess!).
- Whilst the top layer of chocolate is still soft, use your stars, balls etc to decorate.
- Put the spoons on their tray into the fridge to cool and set.
- Once set, you can wrap the top of the spoon in clear cellophane and tie with pretty ribbon.
