Thrift Store Chocolate Spoons

Chocolate Spoons
12 Spoons (I found great mismatched ones at the local goodwill store for .50)
1 cup semisweet or dark chocolate*
Fun extras: crushed peppermint candy, melted white chocolate, sprinkles, shredded coconut
Waxed paper
Clear Plastic wrap

Melt chocolate in the microwave. Set timer for 2 minutes or so, taking care to stir every 30 seconds or so.

Spread out a sheet of waxed paper. Dip clean, dry spoons into the chocolate, then place them on the waxed paper. Allow the spoons to cool slightly, then dip them in the chocolate again. Repeat until chocolate reaches the desired thickness on the spoon. While they're still warm, add the "extras" if you're using them. Place spoons in the fridge to set. Once firm and cool, wrap each one in plastic wrap and tie with a ribbon. I added then to the side of a homemade jar of flavored coffee. They look great!
