peppermint candy canes
chocolate for melting (Wilton candy melts, chocolate bark, even chocolate chips
Crush some peppermint candy canes & set aside.
Melt your candy melts or whatever chocolate you are using in a microwave-safe container. I like to use a small, narrow juice glass. Microwave your chocolate according to directions on package. I usually microwave at one minute intervals, using 50% power until chocolate is melted.
Take your spoon & dip it into the chocolate, coating liberally. Place on a cookie sheet that has been lined with wax paper. Place 3 mini marshmallows down the center of the spoon & sprinkle with the crushed peppermint. You want to do this before the chocolate hardens. Of course, if you don't like peppermint candy, leave it off. Repeat for however many spoons you want to do.
|This is a fun project to do with kids!!!!|
Place the spoons in the freezer for about 5 minutes to set the chocolate.
Wrap spoon in the plastic wrap & tie with a bow.
Give the spoon with directions to: " Add the spoon to hot milk & stir for a delicious hot chocolate drink." I think it would be nice to have a little tag with the title & directions attached to the spoon.
|For a gift, add the spoon to a pretty mug|
