Adapted from the Bakers Chocolate Recipe Website on Tips:
1 - 7 oz bowl of Bakers Dipping Chocolate heat as directed on the bowl
1 brick of White Chocolate for melting
assorted fillings (Optional see suggestions below or use candy bars IE, musketeers, milky way, snickers, peanut butter cups, nutella anything you can like to fill the center with)
Melt chocolate to directions on the package. At this point if you want to use a filling, add to the center of the spoon. Dip the spoon one at a time into the melted chocolate. Coat the spoon just to the bottom end of the spoon edge. Shake gently to remove excess. Place on a wax paper coated cookie sheet and place in the refrigerator until set around 20 minutes or so. See party and gift giving ideas below or just wrap individually with plastic wrap. Tie with coordinating colored ribbons.
|Give these out for Halloween treats! These are filled with chocolate fudge.|
|Great gifts at work or friends at the office! These were filled with peppermint pattie filling.|
IDEA: Fill the centers of the spoons with these suggestions first before dipping: fondant, fudge, truffle candy or Nutella, whole nuts, marshmallow fluff before dipping in chocolate for a great gift treat assortment. Any of your favorite candy bars, snickers, mounds, musketeers, milky way, peanut butter cup or use a truffle recipe below to make them extra special.
Keep them simple: Spoons dipped in just chocolate unfilled, can be flavored first with any type of extracts you like. What kind of coffee are you pairing it up, tea or hot cocoa? Maybe add some almond extract, cinnamon or peppermint to the chocolate while melting it, depending on who and what it's for.
Other ideas for gifts:
Attach a bag of premix cocoa powder to the handle with ribbons. Make you spoons dipped in cinnamon and chocolate mixed, a delicious combination for cocoa!
Attach white baby breath silk flowers to the handle, gold rings and tie with white ribbon for a wedding favors using white chocolate on gold or silver spoons.
Place the decorated wrapped spoon and place inside coffee cup tied with pretty ribbons and add their favorite packaged, tea, coffee or cocoa.
