Chocolate Dipped Spoons

When it’s cold outside, I’m in the mood for hot chocolate!  Some prefer coffee.  Either way, a fun treat to add to your warm beverages are chocolate dipped plastic spoons.  For the holidays this past year, I dipped spoons and added sprinkles, crushed peppermint, and mini marshmellows.  I coupled the spoons with Keurig cups and created some awesome gift baskets for special people in my life.

These spoons only have sprinkles, but you get the idea.  I used the Wilton melting chocolates.  Immediately after dipping approximately 6 spoons, I added the sprinkles, marshmellows, or peppermint.  Then I continued dipping.  I let them dry on parchment paper for several hours.

Since the “little” things are so important when creating gifts for people, I individually wrapped each spoon in a fold top sandwich bag.  I used bakers twine to tie it off and included a fun sign that read “Enjoy” or “Yum” to each spoon.  I propped the spoons up in a box that I wrapped with wrapping paper, and added a bow.  For some of the gifts, I propped up the spoons in the basket with the Keurig cups.  The spoons were a HIT!!!

Happy dipping…
