What I Used:Ice cube trays [from ice cube tray heaven, Ikea £1]
acrylic teaspoons [£2 for 12 from Waitrose]
For my chocolate spoons, I find the Ikea silicon moulds the perfect size for the chocolate spoons and easy to use when needing to get the spoons out at the end!
...and once melted, pour into your mould - only filling half way.
Take your spoon and fix into the chocolate [at least half the spoon must fit into the mould, without touching the bottom to stay secure] - if it doesn't stay sturdy, allow your chocolate to set further. Top up the mould to fill - a small spoon is handy here - and learn from me - fixing one spoon and topping up before starting the next will help as it starts to all get messy from here on...but don't worry, it wont effect the finished chocolate spoon:
Once set, carefully help the chocolate from the moulds...
...and there you have it. These are so easy that they are simple enough for children to make with you. If you can resist eating them all yourself, they also make great favours or desserts.
You could also layer your chocolate, filling a section at a time, alternating colours. Don't add the spoon and you've made some cute chocolates:
Or add a stick, and you have a chocolate pop - I could go on, there are so many different versions and varieties that you can make.
I'm also going to try, nearer the time, peppermint and candy cane versions of these for stirring in mugs of hot chocolate, but even I am thinking it's a little too early for that just now, so....to be continued.
