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
- 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
- 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
- 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!
