Hot Chocolate Dipping Spoons

I don't know about you, but where I live it's quite cold. After sledding with my cousins and friends the other day, we went and got hot chocolate. That reminded me of hot chocolate dipping spoons I saw on pinterest. I decided (without consulting pinterest) to make my own.  These are super easy to make. They are hot chocolate stirrers. You can make them out of any kind of chocolate you want. These can be individually wrapped and given as gifts as well.

Baker's chocolate stands up better at room temperature but chocolate chips will be sweeter (depending on the kind.) Heat up some chocolate in a microwaveable bowl. Stir every 30 seconds- a minute. Be careful, I totally burned my chocolate...and non-microwaveable bowl. Dip a spoon in the chocolate.

You should fill the spoon up fairly full. Don't over fill it though.

Place on wax paper. Sprinkle whatever toppings you want (ie sprinkles, cane sugar, I did crushed peppermint.) Let the chocolate cool and set up. Then serve.

I also made some with peanut butter. To make the peanut butter ones, dip your spoon in the chocolate and tap out most of the chocolate. This will coat the spoon and leave room for the peanut butter.

You can make a peanut butter and powdered sugar mixture (equal parts) or just use regular peanut butter. Taking a knife, spread some peanut butter onto the spoon.

Dip the spoon (carefully) back into the chocolate coating the peanut butter. Place on wax paper and let cool. Then serve with a nice hot cup of hot chocolate!

Yum! My problem is I want to eat all of the chocolate straight out of the microwave.

Thought #2: I wonder how much chocolate you'd need on a spoon to make it so you use hot milk and get all the chocolate flavor from the spoon...

Yum! I think I'd have Smallgood's same problem!

Yummy, not sure if I could make these though, as i would be eating the chocolate before it cooled, lol.
