Chocolate Spoon Craft – Makes a Great Teacher’s Gift!
You can change this craft up for just about any holiday or occasion by altering the sprinkles and candy colors.
Credit for this chocolate spoon craft goes to Mr. P. at DelicousDeliciousDelicous. His are absolutely beautiful, so I recommend you take a look over there, too.
My three-year-old and I made these as party favors when it was my turn to host Bunco night at the house, but we also packed some up and took them to her teachers at preschool. The idea was to use them to stir into your coffee, but I found that many of the ladies were perfectly content to just eat the goodies right off the spoon!
What you need to make this chocolate spoon craft:
- Plastic spoons
- Chocolate chips
- Sprinkles and/or small candies
- A book
- A bowl
My daughter is convinced that everything is better with sprinkles!
Melt the chocolate chips in the microwave. We did a few rounds at 30 seconds and a couple of follow-up rounds at 15 seconds.
Prop the spoon handles up with a book so that the bowl part is flat and the chocolate won't run out. We used a regular spoon to ladle the chocolate into the plastic ones.
Kids can help add sprinkles to the still-warm chocolate to make this edible craft fancier and tastier.
You can add candies to your chocolate spoons, too. We used M&Ms and Kisses.
One bag of chocolate chips makes a lot of spoons!
What I Learned the Hard Way: It takes them a little while to set up, so don’t make them 15 minutes before the party starts.
