How to make chocolate covered spoons: (Homemade Christmas)

How to make chocolate covered spoons

I always think it’s nice to take a gift when you are visiting at Chrstmas but it’s tough when you are on a budget to come up with something fabulous. However a bit of imagination can go a long way …..what about these?

Chocolate-covered spoons.

Go to your local Pound store or supermarket and stock up on plastic spoons. Melt some chocolate in the microwave on 50% power for one minute Stir, and continue melting and checking every 10 seconds and stirring till its smooth. Dip spoons until generously covered with chocolate (a tiny bit fiddly to do …make sure its not too hot.)

Lay them on greaseproofpaeer cool down. You can jazz them up by rolling them in sprinkles or drizzling melted white chocolate on top.

Pop a couple of these with a little pack of hot chocolate in a celllophane and you have a gorgeous visiting gift ( or even a little Christmas gift – I’m thinking teachers, your neighbours, standby gifts etc.)

Happy creating!

(Oh dear I have to give a word of warning we ate all the spoons we made within half an hour of them setting…you get chocolate smeared all over your face so everyone knows too!!!)

    I do love this idea. Thanks for entering Oui Chef.

    I’m going to make some of these with Kidder for his granparents at Christmas, wrap a bow around and make them all pretty.
