How to Make Chocolate Dipped Spoons

26 October

Whether you're planning a hot cocoa bar for a party or just serving hot cocoa for your family, these spoons dipped in chocolate are the perfect way to stir them.  Learn how to make chocolate spoons to give your hot chocolate a flavor boost.  These chocolate dipped wooden spoons make great little treats for the holidays, and you can easily make them for different seasons.





How to Make Chocolate Dipped Spoons


Each year, I plan a community holiday party for our local community center.  Last year was obviously cancelled, but this year we are going to try to have a safe party.


I always have a hot cocoa bar for the guests.  Both the kids and the adults love it because I have several different toppings.  


These chocolate spoons DIY are perfect for a hot cocoa bar or just to keep on hand for hot cocoa for your family.  They are dipped in real chocolate that melts as you stir, which gives your drink more flavor.


You can also top the spoons with fun things like sprinkles, candy cane bits, or even marshmallows to stir into your drink.  I used fall themed sprinkles, but you can get creative with this.

Best Chocolate for Chocolate Dipped Wooden Spoons


I've seed spoons dipped in chocolate made with chocolate chips and with chocolate melting wafers.  I recommend using melting wafers for your chocolate spoons DIY.  


Chocolate melting wafers are made just for melting and setting up again.  Chocolate chips are not really meant for melting.


Chocolate chips tend to be soft and set up soft.  This means your chocolate covered spoons can get dented as they sit before you use them.


If you do want to use chocolate chips, then I recommend adding 2 teaspoons of coconut oil per cup of chocolate chips.


This helps harden the chocolate and gives it a nice gloss.


How to Melt Chocolate for Chocolate Covered Spoons


There are a few ways to melt your chocolate when you learn how to make chocolate spoons.  You can melt it in the microwave, double boiler, or use the Wilton melting pot.


Personally, I love the Wilton melting pot.  It's so easy to use- just put the chocolate wafers in and turn it on.  You need to stir it as it melts, but you don't have to watch it constantly.


I also like using a double boiler.  You can set up a double boiler on the stove or use your Instant Pot as a double boiler.


You can also microwave your chocolate, but I don't recommend it.  It's easy to overheat it or cook it too long.  Chocolate can burn, and you can ruin your entire batch.





How to Make Chocolate Spoons DIY With a Mold


I made chocolate dipped wooden spoons, but you can also learn how to make chocolate spoons that are entirely chocolate.


To do this, you would melt the chocolate and pour it into a silicone mold with spoon shaped cavities.  These are great because they are zero waste, but they aren't practical for parties or kids.  


The chocolate melts on your skin, which means dirty hands.  Because we know a bunch of kids aren't rushing to to wash their hands after using them!


For adults or for a gift, I think they can be really cute!


Where to Find Spoons for Hot Chocolate Spoons DIY


I used disposable wooden spoons to make my chocolate dipped wooden spoons.  They are compostable and earth friendly, so they are a great alternative to using plastic spoons.


However, you can use plastic spoons if you want.


I also used the spoons to make a hot chocolate spoons recipe.


Uses for Chocolate Spoons


We use these spoons dipped in chocolate mainly for hot cocoa.  They have just enough chocolate to boost the flavor of your cup of hot cocoa as you stir it and the chocolate melts.


You can also use your chocolate covered spoons for coffee.



How to Store Hot Chocolate Spoons DIY


Once your chocolate dipped wooden spoons are fully hardened, you can transfer them to an airtight container.  Store them on the counter for up to two weeks.


You can also place them in a cellophane bag and tie with a cute ribbon.  This is a very cute presentation for a party.


Chocolate Covered Spoons Variations and Toppings


I made fall chocolate covered spoons, but you can use other sprinkles.   There are some really fun themed sprinkles on Etsy.


Here are some more variations and topping ideas:
