Hot Chocolate Spoons

Hello! I hope you had a wonderful, fun and happy Christmas.
After a day shopping, out walking with the family or vegging out - settle in with a movie and hot chocolate that can only be made better by Doritos and these: chocolate spoons.

I've made similar before, but [of course] these weren't big enough.  So here's a bigger, better, sprinkled version.

 I picked up some plastic dessert spoons from Sainsburys [but these can be found in most supermarkets] and used the chocolate, sprinkles, chocolate chips and marshmallows I already had in my cupboard.
Other than that, there are no other requirements - let's go.
Melt the chocolate of your choice in the microwave in a small ramekin/bowl that will allow you to fully submerge your spoon in - coat and fill the entire spoon and allow any excess to fall back in to the ramekin/bowl before leaving to rest on a baking paper lined surface:

[if the spoons do not lay flat for the chocolate, prop the ends up with another spoon or something that will act as a ledge, like a pen/pencil].
Once the chocolate has semi-set, add any decorations:
[These may cause the chocolate to move and slightly over spill - no panic]
Once almost completely set, remove the spoons from the baking paper and pop them on a plate to fully set in the fridge. This will now have 'neatened' the spoons and leaves a nice puddle of chocolate for you to eat whilst you wait.  Once fully set [5 minutes should do the trick] remove and they are ready for adding decoration, flavour and marshmallows to your hot chocolate:
[Green & Blacks is my weapon of choice - thoroughly recommended - though if you fancy making your own - here's a post from the archives to make your own from cacao].
These are perfect if you still have children around that need a little entertainment, or to make movie time a little more special - they can be made and used within half an hour and give them a chance to get creative.  Marshmallow pops are also fab to use as stirrers.  Enjoy!
see you on the other side of the year - if you are after any crafty New Year projects, there are pom pom sparklers, ribbon garlands, tassel garlands and chocolate sparklers to keep you busy? x
