Happy Face Spoons
Here are mugs for your mug—flavorful "faces" you can stir in your cocoa or coffee! To create them, our kitchen staff simply dipped spoons into melted vanilla chips, then formed smiling expression with small candies.
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
- 1 cup vanilla or white chips
- 3 tablespoons shortening
- 8 heavy-duty plastic spoons
- Assorted candies and chocolate sprinkles
- In a microwave, melt chips and shortening, stirring occasionally. Dip the bowl end of each spoon into the mixture. Use candies to decorate each with a face.
