The chocolate covered spoons are just about the easiest thing ever:
- Melt some chocolate in the microwave. I used a mix of chocolate chips and hershey kisses.
- Dip plastic spoons into the chocolate letting excess pool in the hollow of the spoon (my four year old perfected this technique).
- Lay spoon onto sheet of wax or parchment paper and immediately sprinkle with crushed candy cane bits. You could also place a mini marshmallow or two on there, or some coffee beans.
- Let cool completely. I got impatient and put the tray into the fridge.
The buckets of spoons are going to school with the boys for the administration offices. Wish I had the time to make a whole slew of them for the teacher's break room. . . ahh, there's always next year when I will plan ahead better!
