Chocolate Coffee Spoons
My husband, Mark and I gave our wedding guests these cute spoons as favors. They're a fun way to flavor an out-of-the-ordinary cup of coffee. Plus, the plastic spoon handles can be color-coordinated with any bridal theme.
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling
- 1 pound dark or milk chocolate candy coating, coarsely chopped
- 1/4 teaspoon mint candy flavoring (oil-based only), optional
- 60 plastic spoons
- Place 1/4 pound candy coating in a deep glass cup. Microwave at 30% or 50% power for 30 seconds or until melted, stirring every 15 seconds. Stir in flavoring if desired.
- Coat entire bowl of a plastic spoon with chocolate. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Repeat until all spoons are coated. Refrigerate until firm, about 10 minutes. Cover and store in a cool place until serving.
Editor's Note: Dark or milk chocolate candy coating is found in the baking section of most grocery stores and is often sold in bulk package of 1 to 1-1/2 pounds. Candy flavoring can be found in cake decorating supply stores or by mail order.
Editor's NoteThis recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.
