Ingredients

Chocolate Stirring Spoons

  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips or chunks (see notes)
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 cup varitey of toppings (see list below)
  • 20-24 wooden or plastic spoons

Serve With

  • 8 oz warmed milk, planet-based milk or hot cocoa

Instructions

  • Prep: Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • Melt: In a microwave-safe cup or tall bowl, add in the chocolate and coconut oil. Microwave in 30 second intervals until chocolate is melted, stirring after each round. It took 2 minutes for my chocolate to melt.
  • Cool: Place the cup of melted chocolate in the fridge for 5 minutes to let it cool. You want it be able to stay on the spoon - so melted but not super runny.
  • Dip: take a spoon and dip it into the melted chocolate, leaving the cup portion of the spoon full of chocolate, scraping any excess chocolate that is on the back of the spoon on the top of the cup. Place the spoon on the parchment paper.
    Spread of process of how to dip spoons and add toppings.
  • Decorate: Using any toppings you prefer, decorate the spoons with any toppings you prefer.
  • Repeat: Repeat the process until all of the chocolate is used - roughly 20-24 spoons. I used the spoon I stirred the chocolate with to help me at the end get the spoons covered with chocolate.
  • Chill: Place the baking sheets in the fridge and let chill for 1-2 hours.
  • Store: Once hardened, you can store at room temperature.
    Spoons dipped in chocolate and with toppings spread over a plate and green napkin.

Notes

Chocolate Options: you can use any chocolate chips/chunks you prefer - allergy-free, sugar-free, dark chocolate, semi-sweet or white chocolate. You can also chop up a chocolate bar and get the same results. 
Cooking with Kids: you can easily make this recipe with your toddler or kids. With a toddler, you can melt the chocolate and dip the spoons and your toddler can sprinkle the toppings on top of the chocolate spoons. With kids, you can easily supervise and gently guide them through all of the steps. 
Spoon: these are the spoons I used, but any wooden or plastic spoons would work. 
Topping Options:
  • marshmallows 
  • crushed candy canes
  • chopped pistachios, pecans, walnuts or almonds
  • chopped dried cherries, cranberries or blueberries
  • crushed freeze-dried cranberries, strawberries, apples or blueberries
  • crushed cereal
  • vanilla granola
  • shredded coconut
  • warmed peanut butter
  • sprinkles 
  • crushed cookies - oreos, vanilla wafers, etc
  • crushed graham crackers - would be great paired with marshmallows
  • peanut butter chips
  • white chocolate chips
  • mini dark chocolate chips
  • any small candy
  • chopped butterscotch
  • chopped chocolate mints
  • warmed Nutella
Storage: once chilled, you can store them in an air-tight container at room temperature for up to 1 week or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
