Supplies Needed to Make Chocolate-Covered Spoons

Here’s what you need to make chocolate-covered spoons. Any measurements are in the how-to card below.

  • Plastic spoons – I like the silver ones and I also got a smaller size just for fun
  • Chocolates – White, Dark, and I used a Red one for decorating
  • Fun Sprinkles (edible glitter hearts are so cool!)
  • Clear bags for wrapping the spoons up to gift
  • Decorative string or ribbons
  • Double-boiler (simply set a glass bowl over a pot of boiling water)
  • Cookie Sheet
  • Wax paper
  • Toothpicks
  • Printable tags – print them for free below
  • Scissors – to cut out the tags

How to Make Chocolate Coffee Spoons

Step 1: Gather supplies and line a baking sheet with wax paper.

Step 2: Set up double-boilers. I used two pots and two glass bowls for the dark and white chocolate, but then melted the red baking chips in a glass dish in the microwave.

Step 3: Once everything is melted, dip your spoons. Evenly coat them and then place them on a cookie sheet lined with wax paper.

Step 4: While the chocolate is still cooling, decorate. Recruit creative minds if necessary. (Adam LOVES this job–but refuses to admit it.) Use sprinkles or drizzle different colored chocolates over the spoons. Using a toothpick is fun to create swirly designs.

Step 5: Let cool in the fridge for at least 20 minutes before putting in baggies and tying with a ribbon or string.

What to Gift with the Spoons

Chocolate-covered spoons can be paired with a variety of items to create a complete and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift. Here are some suggestions:

  • Hot drinks: The chocolate-covered spoons are perfect for stirring into hot drinks like coffee or hot chocolate. Include the spoons along with a bag of coffee or packages of hot chocolate.
  • Gift basket: Put the chocolate-covered spoons in a gift basket with other treats like cookies, candies, or gourmet hot chocolate mix.
  • Flowers: If you’re going the traditional route of candies and flowers for Valentine’s Day, include a bouquet of flowers.
  • Homemade goodies: Consider adding other homemade goodies to your gift, such as cookies, hot chocolate melts, coffee melts, brownies, or cake.

Recipe Substitutions and Variations

  • Chocolate type: Experiment with different types of chocolate, such as dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate, or candy melts. You can also use a mixture of different chocolates for a unique flavor.
  • Toppings: Add toppings like sprinkles, crushed nuts, dried fruit, or crushed cookies for extra texture and flavor. Use edible glitter and luster dust to add shimmer and sparkle.
  • Flavored syrups: Stir in flavored syrups, such as caramel, hazelnut, or peppermint, into the melted chocolate for a fun twist.
  • Spices: Add a pinch of spices, such as cinnamon or nutmeg, to the melted chocolate for a warm and cozy flavor.
  • Extracts: Add extracts, such as vanilla or almond extract, to the melted chocolate for an extra touch of flavor.
  • Coconut oil: Stir in a bit of coconut oil to the melted chocolate to make it smoother and easier to work with.

How to Store

To store the coffee spoons, it’s best to keep them at room temperature in an airtight container away from sources of moisture for up to two weeks. It’s also a good idea to place a sheet of wax paper or parchment paper between each spoon if you’re stacking them.

DIY Notes and FAQ

Can I use toppings other than what’s listed in the recipe?

Absolutely! You can add any toppings you like, such as sprinkles, crushed nuts, dried fruit, or crushed cookies. Get creative and have fun with it!

What can I use if I don’t have a double boiler?

If you don’t have a double boiler, you can create a makeshift one by placing a heat-safe bowl over a pot of simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl does not touch the water.

Can I make these chocolate spoons for other occasions?

Yes, you can make these chocolate spoons for any occasion, not just Valentine’s Day. Simply switch up the toppings and printable tags to suit the occasion.
