How to Make Chocolate Spoons

Read all of the steps before starting.
Step 1: Melt Chocolate

In the microwave oven, melt white chocolate in a cup or small bowl. Melt milk chocolate in another cup or bowl. Follow the package's instructions for melting the chocolate. Of course, you may melt chocolate on the stove top in a small pan.

Tip: The melted chocolate needs to be about 2" deep, so that it covers the submerged spoon's bowl.

Caution: Melting chocolate requires adult supervision!

Step 2: Dip Spoons

Dip half of the spoons in white chocolate, and dip the other half in milk chocolate. Dip each spoon as far as the base of the spoon's bowl. Place the spoons on waxed paper, and let the chocolate set completely.

Tip: For faster setting, place the wax paper and spoons on a tray and place it in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes.

Step 3: Dip Again (optional)

When chocolate has set, dip the white spoons in milk chocolate and dip milk chocolate spoons in white. This time dip only half way up the bowl of the spoon to create a layered effect. Place back on waxed paper to begin setting.

Tip: Use any leftover chocolate on a bowl of ice cream!

Step 4: Add Sprinkles (optional)

Let the chocolate set only partially (about 5 minutes), then gently dip the top half of the spoons in chocolate sprinkles or colored sugar.

Step 5: Wrap Spoons

After the chocolate has set completely, wrap the spoon in cellophane and tie with ribbon. You might add a little tag, like "Stir me into your coffee". Use cellophane and ribbon in colors to match the holiday, occasion or gift.

Tip: 7" squares of cellophane work well. You can use a double thickness of plastic wrap in place of cellophane.

That's it! Your chocolate spoons are done!

Thanks to...

Thanks to Carlie for sharing this craft idea with Aunt Annie's Craft Exchange in 1996.

Carlie shared, "This is not a new craft, but I still use it often. I gave the spoons, along with a pretty holiday mug, as gifts to my adult Sunday school class. I've also used them as shower favors and as an after-dinner special touch with coffee. I enjoy making and sharing all kinds of crafts with my grandchildren, family and friends."
