Holiday Recipe Kids Can Make
Homemade Hot Chocolate Spoons
It’s only 10 more days until Christmas! Are you still looking for a fun recipe or gift to make? Well then I have something super cute and easy for you to try! I’m talking about my Holiday Recipe Kids Can make, this Homemade Hot Chocolate Spoons! This fun little craft/recipe is easy enough for your kids to do, and it also make for a yummy treat and a sweet gift idea! My daughter and I made these Hot Chocolate Spoons for her teacher and added a gift card to a bookstore so she could enjoy a hot drink and snuggle up with a good book on her Christmas Break. We thought it was pretty cute and clever, ha! Let’s check out how to make them:
Here is how to make my Holiday Recipe Kids Can Make: Homemade Hot Chocolate Spoons
You Will Need:
- Melting Chocolate
- Plastic Spoons
- parchment paper
- Toppings (We used crushed peppermint, coconut flakes, and marshmallows)
- Plastic treat bags
First, Melt your chocolate. Lay some parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Dip your spoon into your chocolate and make sure you get a good amount on the spoon. You will be only using the chocolate on the spoon for your hot chocolate so you will want to make sure you have a good amount to melt into your milk!
Next, It’s time to get decorating! This was my daughters favorite part of the project. You can use whatever you can think of for the toppings. We used crushed candy canes, marshmallows and coconut flakes! You could use candies, fruit, nuts, etc! You will want to make sure you do this while your chocolate is still hot and melted.
Then, after you have decorated your spoons stick them in the freezer for about an hour and let them completely harden. Once they have grab some clear plastic treat bags and wrap your spoons in the bag.
Finally, Get a little festive! Grab some Christmas ribbon and tie a cute bow around the spoons, stick them in a cute holiday mug (or unwrap them and enjoy them in a warm glass of milk yourself!) and call it a day!
That’s it! A few simple steps and some sweet ingredients and you have a great holiday treat everyone is sure to love!
