Hot chocolate on a spoon is a simple winter project/gift that the entire family can enjoy making and using! They’re delicious, fun to make, and fun to use!
Hot Chocolate On A Spoon Recipe
Ingredients & Supplies
Here’s a list of things you’ll need to assemble your spoons:
- Spoons (inexpensive metal spoons, plant based starch spoons, or wooden spoons)
- Chocolate chips or chunks of chocolate (Use a chocolate with a high amount of cacao to avoid a lot of sugar. If you’re really ambitious, you can grind cacao nibs and add your preferred sweetener. Or use chocolate sweetened with a sugar alternative, like stevia.)
- Clear bags with ties or waxed paper
- optional, candy garnish – (naturally colored sprinkles, natural mini marshmallows, organic candy cane pieces, lavender buds, coarse sea salt, or anything else)
Begin by melting the chocolate until it becomes liquid. Dip a spoon in so that it covers the spoon. Let it cool a bit, then dip it again. The best hot chocolate uses more chocolate, so dip the spoon several times. If you have a deep spoon, you can simply scoop it into the chocolate.
After the last dip, roll it in your optional candy garnish or sprinkle it on.
Lay spoons on parchment paper and allow them to cool and harden completely. Package spoons in the clear bags if giving as gifts. Tie with ribbon, a twist tie, or twine.
Using Your Hot Chocolate On A Spoon
If you’re giving these as a gift, you’ll want to include instructions on how to use them:
Heat a mug of milk (almond or coconut milk works just as well) and dip the spoon into the mug. Stir until all the chocolate is dissolved. Enjoy hot! Extra sweetener of your choice can be added if it’s not sweet enough.
Flavoring the Chocolate
I love regular hot chocolate, but peppermint is so much better! Add a few drops of peppermint extract to the melted chocolate before dipping your spoons. A few more options include:
Or try any flavor you like!
