Stir up a treat with Chocolate Spoons!

Make your own Hot chocolate with these chocolate spoons! Simply fill a mug with hot milk, stir with the chocolate spoon and watch it melt. Or stir into a hot chocolate to make it extra chocolaty.

The mould to make the chocolate spoons can be found here

1) Milk chocolate marshmallow spoon - melt milk chocolate (see tips below) - pour into spoon mould until level with the rim. Sprinkle some marshmallows on the end. Place in freezer until the chocolate is solid and the spoon can be removed from the mould.

2) Dark chocolate honeycomb spoon - melt dark chocolate - pour into spoon mould until level with the rim. Sprinkle some honeycomb shards (chopped up crunchie bar would work well). Place in freezer until the chocolate is solid and the spoon can be removed from the mould.

3) White chocolate cookies & cream spoon - melt white chocolate - pour into spoon mould until level with the rim. Sprinkle some chopped oreo cookie at the end. Place in freezer until the chocolate is solid and the spoon can be removed from the mould.

Tips for melting chocolate

1) On the stove/cooker - Place chocolate in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Keep stirring until the chocolate has melted and is smooth and glossy. Remove from heat.

2) Using a microwave - Place chocolate (broken into small pieces or use chocolate chips) in a small microwaveable bowl, add a few drops of oil. For white chocolate heat in 30 second bursts on low - keep checking and stirring the chocolate to avoid burning. For milk and dark chocolate heat in 30 second bursts on medium power. Keep checking and stirring the chocolate to avoid burning.

These chocolate spoons would make a lovely christmas gift - just place into a cellophane bag and tie with some curling ribbon. It is also a fun, easy project to keep children entertained over the holiday period, they can add their favourite topping to the end of the spoon!
