Chocolate stir spoons are the perfect way to enjoy a cup of hot chocolate. Simple to make, and fun to give as gifts. Great teacher gifts and neighbor gifts.
I do not like the weather when it starts to get cold outside. I am a summer girl through and through, and I do not like to be cold. But there is one of my favorite things that I can always turn to when I do get cold, and that is hot chocolate. I love hot chocolate!
Today I am going to show you how I make Hot Chocolate Stir Spoons. They are the perfect addition to a nice cup of hot chocolate. They add a little bit more chocolate flavor as well as a hint of peppermint.
Start out with some plastic spoons. See, pretty easy so far!
Lay the spoons out on some wax paper. You don’t have to lay them out in a strange pattern, but I did. Not for any real good reason but just because I am cool like that.
I used Chocolate and Vanilla flavored CandiQuik.
I have this fancy squeeze bottle for chocolate. This tool is nice because you can melt the chocolate right in it and then the spout makes it easy to control when pouring it. But you also just as easily dip the spoon in the chocolate, and that would work just as well.
I also added just a couple of drops of peppermint oil to the chocolate, and then shook it to mix it in well. The oil is strong so it really doesn’t take very much.
Carefully squeeze the chocolate into the bowl of the spoons.
I sprinkled some Andes Peppermint Crunch Baking Chips on the spoons before the chocolate sets. These chips are really good plus they make the stir spoons even cuter and are totally worth it.
After the chocolate sets and hardens I wrapped each stir spoon individually in plastic treat bags.
For a cute gift I added two Hot Chocolate Stir Spoons to a mug with 2 packages of hot chocolate and a candy cane.
