How to Make Hot Chocolate Spoons

These hot chocolate spoons look super fancy, but they’re a cinch to make. Whip some up as a special treat for your family, or make them your go-to holiday gift for friends, co-workers and neighbors. I came up with a fun variation that you’re going to want to try.

Hot Chocolate Spoons Recipe

What You’ll Need

Each hot chocolate spoon requires approximately one ounce of chocolate. So, the 12 ounces of baking chocolate called for in the recipe is based on using a 12-cube ice cube tray. If your tray is bigger, or smaller, just adjust the amount of chocolate accordingly.

Wooden or plastic spoons work just fine in this recipe, but for a fun twist, try my edible peppermint spoons. After the chocolate melts, you’ll be left with a delicious candy spoon for stirring. Yum!

Dehydrated Marshmallows

Dehydrated marshmallows are my favorite topping to use on hot chocolate spoons. They’re much smaller than mini marshmallows, so you can actually get enough marshmallows on each spoon to fill an entire mug. And they’ll puff up to the size of mini marshmallows as soon as they come into contact with the hot milk.

Alright, now that we’ve discussed some of the tasty possibilities, let’s make a batch!

What You Do:

Melted Chocolate

Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. A metal bowl over a pot of water works great.

Pour Melted Chocolate Into Ice Cube Tray

Pour, or spoon, the chocolate into your ice cube tray, stopping a little before you reach the top, to ensure there’s plenty of room for the spoons.

Insert Spoons in Chocolate

Then, insert a spoon in each compartment …

and sprinkle your toppings over the top of the chocolate.

Hardened Hot Chocolate Spoons in a Mold

Let the chocolate set up. Then, carefully unmold your hot chocolate spoons.

If you’re in a hurry, you can speed up the process by placing your chocolate spoons in the fridge or freezer for a couple hours.

Your spoons will probably try to flop over when you first insert them. Just wait for the chocolate to set up a bit; then, stand them back up.

To Gift

Simply wrap one or more hot chocolate spoons in a cellophane bag. Then, tie the bag off with a piece of string or ribbon. As long as you use shelf-stable toppings, these have a really long shelf life.

  1. What type of baker’s chocolate do you use? Semisweet? Bittersweet? Unsweetened (since the candy sweetens it?) Thanks. Look forward to trying this!
