These Chocolate Covered Spoons are a great teacher gift when you individually wrap them and fill a coffee mug, they make a fantastic addition to a coffee or cocoa bar at any Holiday get together, drop a couple off at the neighbors for a thoughtful surprise, or surprise your kids when they come in from the cold with a mug of cocoa and a chocolate spoon. We have even stirred them into our oatmeal).
They are also super simple to make which lets the kids get there hands in there and be a part of making a cute, handmade gift. They can also be done in so many flavor combinations, with a multitude of add ons-sprinkles, marshmallows, crushed nuts, coconut, mini chocolate chips- you are sure to find one that fits everyone on your list. Making cookie trays this year? Be sure to include several of these on the platter!
