How to make chocolate covered spoons
I always think it’s nice to take a gift when you are visiting at Christmas 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 greaseproof paper to 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 cellophane and you have a gorgeous visiting gift ( or even a little Christmas gift – I’m thinking teachers, your neighbours, standby gifts etc.)
(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!!!)
