So i wanted the most possible blinged out card box without spending a fortune. I finally finished...
I am really happy with how well these Chocolate covered spoons turned out. I will have them on the late night coffee and snack table for people to enjoy :)
They were really easy to do ladies, here's the intructions should you want to do a bunch up for your wedding.
Sturdy Plastic Spoons. Use a descent quality spoon since the cheaper one tend to not hold up well with melted chocolate.
Wax Paper or Parchment Paper
Small clear candy wraps bags (I got mine at Michaels)
- Line cookie sheet with wax paper.
- Melt Chocolate of your choice slowly in a double broiler, Stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from heat. You want the chocolate to be thick and *just* melted so that it wont be too hot that it melts the plastic spoon. You can let the melted chocolate rest for a moment in needed.
- Dip spoons in the melted chocolate. Be sure to cover the entire tip of spoon, going up to about quarter of an inch up the handle. With spoon side up, gently tap handle of spoon on side of bowl to remove any excess chocolate, with the spoon itself holding a full level of melted chocolate.
- Lay spoons in a single row on the cookie sheet with the handles resting on the rim of the cookie sheet (to keep the chocolate level in the spoon)
- At this point you can cover some of your spoons in toffee bits or any crushed up candy of your choice. Refrigerate for 30 45 minutes
- Melt the white chocolate and the dark chocolate chips/squares separately. How it did it was to place the chocolate in Ziploc baggies, seal shut, then drop them in a bowl of hot water (not boiling, or you will melt the bag)
- Once the chocolate is melted, dry off the bag and snip a small hole in the corner of each bag. Gently drizzle the melted chocolate onto the chilled chocolate covered spoons. Chill Again for another 30 minutes.
- Once the chocolate is chilled and set completely, wrap up each spoon with small plastic bags.
