These make a cute gift when wrapped individually in cellophane, tied with colorful ribbon and displayed in a Christmas mug. To set the chocolate quickly, chill dipped spoons in the freezer. —Marcy Boswell, Menifee, California

  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 3-1/2 teaspoons shortening, divided
  • 1 cup white baking chips
  • 24 metal, wooden or plastic spoons
  • Optional: Coarse sugar or chocolate sprinkles


  1. In a microwave-safe bowl, melt milk chocolate chips with 2 teaspoons shortening; stir until smooth. Repeat with white baking chips and remaining shortening. Dip spoons into either mixture, tapping handles on bowl edges to remove excess. Place on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet. Pipe or drizzle milk chocolate over white-dipped spoons and white mixture over milk chocolate-dipped spoons. Use a toothpick or skewer to swirl chocolate. If desired, decorate with coarse sugar or sprinkles. Chill for 5 minutes or until set. Use as stirring spoons for coffee or cocoa.
