Chocolate Covered Spoons! Oh My!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I feel really like a bad parent...I haven't blogged or posted anything this past week! I have been doing nothing but getting ready for a huge Christmas Craft Show this coming Saturday.....so, as much as I hate to admit it, blogging hasn't been on my mind. But, I'm back.....almost through with everything I'm going to be selling.

One of the items I've made is coffee mugs with funny sayings painted on them. Ya'll know I love my coffee, but, another thing that I love is chocolate! I had thought about ordering some pre-made chocolate covered spoons, but, after searching, I realized that it wasn't in the budget. So, I researched on Pinterest and realized that I probably could make them myself.

I had a pack of spoons left over from the last cook out, and had the chocolate morsels to melt, but, I wanted to have something else to add a little pizazz. I drove down to my closet Dollar General just to see what I might could find, and found a small box of Christmas Peppermint Bark, which I love. When I got back, I placed several pieces in a Ziploc bag, and crushed it into small pieces so it would be easier to place on the melted chocolate on the spoons. So, gathering the chocolate morsels, wax paper for the baking sheet to lay the spoons on, the spoons, I then placed about a cup of the morsels in a small dish and micro-waved them until they were thoroughly melted...this took about a minute.

I quickly dipped each spoon into the melted chocolate and then dropped the peppermint pieces on each spoon. I laid each one on the baking sheet and placed into refrigerator to set.










There were a few things I need to do the next time....I realized I could add a very small amount of oil if the chocolate gets to hard, and to make small batches of the chocolate, but, I tried one out this afternoon with a cup of coffee and it was so good, and of course each one will be wrapped in clear wrap and finished with a cute little bow!

Blessings,
Deborah
