DIY Hot Chocolate Spoons
Adapted from Alpha Mom

Mismatching spoons (I used a mix of thrifted spoons and ones from our retro-inspired Cutensils Cutlery Set!)
Chocolate chips, regular and mini
Peanut butter chips
White chocolate chips
Shredded coconut
Crushed candy canes
Wax paper

1. Starting with the chocolate you want to dip your spoons in, heat the chocolate chips in the microwave safe bowl. After a minute, stir, and place back in the microwave for 20-second intervals until melted.

2. Dip your spoon in the melted chocolate, making sure to turn and rotate until it is fully covered. Place the spoon on the wax paper.

3. While the chocolate is drying, decorate them! Take inspiration from the examples I provided, or come up with your own creative concoctions. Basically, there is no wrong way to decorate your spoons for dippin’.

    I saw I diy for this, except they used wooden spoons. But those are definitely not sold in walmart or fred meyer, so the mismatched spoon idea is so cute and perfect!

    This is way more environmentally friendly than using wooden spoons, and it is also completely adorable! It’s a sweet idea, but I don’t know if I’d have the patience for it.

    I done something similar in the past, except I used plastic spoons: I like the idea of the mismatched spoons instead. However, you do it though, people love them. They were a huge hit with my family and friends. I may have to make some again this year.

      Hey, Jamie!

      Good question. I might recommend wrapping them individually in clear plastic wrap in the event that they happen to melt at all. Also, if you could find a place that will pack them with dry ice (think ice cream shops) I think that could be your best bet! Shipping of these could be tricky, but I would try those two options. 🙂
