Chocolate Dipped Spoons

Sunday, October 7, 2012
These Chocolate Dipped Spoons are always a huge winner for parties, fundraisers, holidays weddings and baby showers and gift giving and we have tons of ideas for you to make a beautiful assortment easily with plastic spoons to make a perfect party favor.

The idea came to me when my niece had cancer and we needed to have a fundraiser to help pay for all the incurring hospital treatments so my first idea was a breast cancer awareness pink spoon and I added a fluffy Truffle with Bailey's Irish Cream filling, dipped them in pink tinted white chocolate and we sold out on them which made me so happy to help.

The spoons are great for attaching to part of a hot cocoa lovers gift to stir in just a spoon dipped in melted chocolate, so there is nothing complicated about making these perfect for any event, holiday, birthday, or party favor you need them for.

Purchasing the spoons and ingredients are easily found at any craft store or even most dollar stores have colorful or clear spoons to match the theme of your party, gift, or fundraiser colors.

Below are some ideas, suggestions, and tips to make the prettiest filled party spoons that taste delicious with some simple instructions.

  1. Make them for Charity events to raise money, IE Breast Cancer Awareness Month using the symbol in pink on white dipped spoons. You can make them for any fundraiser event
  2. Great gifts at work or with friends at the office! These were filled with peppermint pattie filling.
  3. Keep them simple: Spoons dipped in just chocolate unfilled can be flavored first with any type of extracts you like.
  4. What kind of coffee are you pairing it up, tea or hot cocoa? Maybe add some almond extract, cinnamon, or peppermint to the chocolate while melting it, depending on who and what it's for.
  • Attach a bag of premix cocoa powder to the handle with ribbons.
  • Make your spoons dipped in cinnamon and chocolate mix, a delicious combination for cocoa!
  • Attach white baby breath silk flowers to the handle, gold rings, and tie with white ribbon for wedding favors using white chocolate on gold or silver spoons.
Place the decorated wrapped spoon and place inside the coffee cup-tied with pretty ribbons and add their favorite packaged, tea, coffee, or cocoa.
