Uses For Chocolate Spoons
Chocolate stirring spoons are simple to make and can be used for many different drinks. White or Dark chocolate is perfect for a cup of hot coffee, to make a simple home-brewed coffee into a mocha or a white chocolate mocha. Stepping up the flavor of freshly brewed coffee to add that coffee shop flavor right at your dinner table.
After dinner, a chocolate spoon can be stirred into decaf coffee for an after dinner coffee. Beautiful decorated stirring spoons make a decaf cup of coffee almost like dessert. For the little ones at Easter let them pick out their pretest spoon and stir it in a cup of hot chocolate. While the parents are having coffee kids can have a special after dinner hot drink that is fun to cool off with a cute chocolate spoon.
After the chocolate is set in the spoon, slip the spoon in a clear plastic bag and tie it with a beautiful ribbon. Have the spoons wrapped to make them perfect for a centerpiece, in a cute bunny coffee cup, or as part of the place setting at each seat. They can even be grouped together to have as a gift in an adult Easter Basket. Every guest loves a parting gift and a set of dark and white chocolate spoons is a fun guest take home gift.
How To Make Chocolate Spoons
Making these super cute Chocolate Spoons is super easy. If you are making molded chocolate or dipping cooking in chocolate, use the leftover chocolate. You will want to make sure you have plenty of chocolate chips to melt as once you have two or three of these made you will find it hard to stop. With all the beautiful sprinkles the possibilities are endless.
Make sure you are using larger sprinkles. A tiny or light sprinkle will disappear in the chocolate. The round or oblong sprinkles that are sometimes called Jimmies work the best. I tried sanding sugar, which is a larger crystal but they also did not hold their shape.
The chocolate spoons can be made with your favorite chocolate chip. I used dark chocolate, chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and white chocolate chips. You do not have to get fancy unless you want to, but just buy great tasting chocolate that you love.
Put each type of chocolate chip in a pyrex glass measuring cup with a handle. Have on had pot holders to as the measuring cup can get hot the more you melt the chocolate. The simplest way to get the chips melted is to use the microwave 30 seconds at a time. After every 30 seconds stir the chips. Keep melting at 30 seconds time until the chocolate chips are a smoothly-melted consistency. This will be just right to make the spoon.
Have a cooling rack that is on the counter on top of waxed paper. That way if there are any drips it is easy to clean up.
Take a plastic spoon of any color that matches your tablescape and dip it in the chocolate. Try to get the chocolate only on the top of the spoon and a little on the back, but this does not have to be perfect.
Place the chocolate dipped spoons on the cooling rack and now the fun begins. If your little ones are helping in the kitchen now is the time to let them put on the sprinkles. Please the different sprinkles in little bowls so that they can easily get the sprinkle out without too much of a mess. You can also give them little plastic spoons to use for this process.
