Hot Chocolate Spoons


I actually made these before Christmas, but I thought they would work for Valentine's Day as well!  
I'm sure you could think of lots of cute tags like:

You're Hot Stuff!
You Stir Me!
Valentine, You Warm My Heart!

OK, OK, you get the picture!


I found these cute bamboo spoons at Party City in a package of 12 for $3.99. They're slightly oversized, which means, MORE CHOCOLATE! The girls and I made these assembly line style with melted chocolate in the slow cooker.  Dip, place on parchment, and add as many marshmallows as you can make stick.


Or use up all those left over candy canes for a peppermint version!

Attach a tag that reads:  Stir into one cup of hot milk!


We put together 60 of these in about an hour!
The girls are now ready to go into business!

  1. Love this idea especially with the use of left over candy canes. I love stirring my hot chocolate with a candy cane but it takes forever to melt. This would be a very quicker way I would thing to get the candy to melt .
