350: Chocolate Spoons
I can’t believe I haven’t taken a picture of the Chocolate Spoons I made to put in gift baskets. They were incredibly easy to make. I also can’t believe that I haven’t used one yet, but I’m sure I will soon.
With this recipe, I can’t remember exactly the recipe I used – I had printed out a few (including this one and this one). In the end, I used a mixture of Hershey’s Special Dark and regular semisweet chocolate chips. I put 2 cups (one bag’s worth total) into my 2-cup Pyrex measuring cup, and microwaved it in 30 second bursts, stirring after each one, until the chocolate was all melted. Alex and I dipped plastic spoons in the chocolate, coating it well, and set them on waxed paper to let them harden. I think we got about 30 spoons dipped. After they hardened, we put them in sandwich baggies and ribbon.
Honestly, wrapping them up was the most difficult part. They looked very cute wrapped up with ribbon – it’s a shame I forgot to take a picture of them. I’ll make them again, but I’ll have to figure out a more efficient way to wrap them up than with the sandwich baggies and handcut ribbon.
