Brighten up someone’s cocoa, coffee or even tea with a selection of chocolate spoons. They are so easy to make and the whole family can join together to create their favorites.  The combinations are unlimited and who doesn’t love chocolate!

Plastic spoons work best, but you can use silverware picked up at a thrift shop to make them extra special.  Simply melt chocolate in the microwave for 1 minute or use a double boiler, then dip the spoon into the chocolate, place on wax paper and decorate.  Let the chocolate harden again at room temperature or speed it up a bit in the refrigerator for a few minutes.

You can use white, milk, semi-sweet or dark chocolate and decorate with one or a variety of these possibilities or colorful sprinkles:

·       mini chocolate chips

·      mini marshmallows

·      shredded coconut

·      peanut butter chips

·      butterscotch chips

·      crushed candy canes

·      chocolate curls

·      crème de menthe baking chips

·      vanilla baking chips

Turn your creations into a blessing by wrapping in cellophane and adding them to a mug with some cocoa packets or a bag of the following chai mix:

1c nonfat dry milk
1c powdered nondairy creamer
1c French vanilla powdered nondairy creamer
1 3/4c sugar
            Combine all ingredients in a food processor until the mixture becomes a fine powder.  Put 4Tbs in a re-sealable plastic bag for each gift mug and combine with 2 chocolate spoons. 
To serve: Stir 2Tbs mixture into a mug of hot tea, coffee or cocoa.
Chocolate Chai: Stir with a chocolate spoon!


 A generous man will prosper;
he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed
