Hot Chocolate Stir Sticks

Stir Some Holiday Fun Into Your Hot Chocolate! 


Things I Used: 
  • Plastic Spoons 
  • Chocolate For Melting 
  • Crushed Candy Canes 
  • Assorted Sprinkles 
  • Holiday Smarties 
*Ideas for Other Treats You Could Use : * 
  • Marshmellows 
  • White Chocolate Drizzle 
  • Mini Chocolate Chips 
  • Coloured Sugar 
  • Any Crushed Chocolate Bar

First, place the number of spoons you would like to make on a plate. Make sure they aren't touching each other. 
Next, melt the chocolate that you plan on using for the base of your spoons. I used a double boiler system and I added a little bit of milk to the chocolate to thin it out and make it more creamy. 
Once your chocolate is melted, use a spoon to generously scoop the chocolate onto each spoon until they are all full. Be careful! The chocolate will be hot!
Don't waste any time before decorating the spoons to your liking. You don't want the chocolate to start to set before you get a chance to add your goodies. 
After all your spoons are decorated carefully place them on a flat surface in your fridge for about an hour to allow them to set. 
Once they were completely set I wrapped each spoon end individually with saran wrap and  tied it off with festive ribbon. 

These goodies make a great addition to a homemade gift. Who doesn't love adding more chocolate to their hot chocolate?!
