Hot Chocolate Dipping Spoons

Feb 16, 2016

The weather outside is frightful, but hot chocolate is so delightful!

Nothing warms my kiddos up on a cold winter’s day like a delicious mug of warm hot chocolate. And what makes hot chocolate even better? Dipping spoons!

They're so easy to make, your kids will want to join in on the fun.

You Will Need:

  • plastic spoons
  • white melting chocolate
  • milk melting chocolate
  • decorations or toppings of your choice: sprinkles, crushed candy canes, butterscotch chips, rainbow chocolate chips—the possibilities are endless!

Supplies for hot chocolate dipping spoons.


1. Kids can do this step with adult supervision. Heat melting chocolate (in separate bowls) in the microwave in 30 second increments—stirring in between—until melted.

2. Dip the end of your plastic spoon in the melted chocolate. Lift up and let the excess chocolate drip back into the bowl.

3. Place your chocolate-coated spoon on a piece of wax paper. While the chocolate is still wet, sprinkle toppings of your choice onto the spoon. Repeat this process for all of your spoons.

Once finished, pop the spoons and wax paper into the freezer for 20-30 minutes or until chocolate is hardened.
