This year I am looking for a few fun and SIMPLE ideas to give to friends and neighbors for holiday gifts. Oh and they also need to be inexpensive without feeling “cheap.” I love hot cocoa so this year I came up with this really tasty and delicious salted caramel chocolate spoon recipe! These make a perfect gift on their own, or you can pair it with hot cocoa mix for an even tastier gift. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this delicious and so simple-to-make chocolate spoon recipe!
- Make ‘n Mold Salted Caramel Candy Wafers.
- Make ‘n Mold Dark Chocolate Candy Wafers.
- Clear Plastic Spoons.
- Kosher Salt.
- Make ‘n Mold Microwavable Containers (optional).
- Foil or Parchment Paper.
First you will melt your salted caramel wafers in a microwave safe dish in the microwave. You can see all my tips and tricks for melting chocolate here, but basically you will add your wafers to the dish, and melt for 30 seconds at a time on 50% power, stirring in between. You can add vegetable oil to help your chocolate be silky smooth and to avoid over heating, but I prefer not to when you want your chocolate to harden well. Note that the more veggie oil you add, the softer your chocolate will be.
Once your wafers are melted, dip your plastic spoon in and tap off the excess.
Once it is set, melt your dark chocolate wafers and then dip your spoons partially into the chocolate. Then place your spoons on foil or wax paper to harden.
Before the chocolate completely sets, sprinkle a dash of kosher salt on the spoons for an added touch of salt as well as a beautiful accent on them!
These truly make hot cocoa luxurious!
Enjoy your chocolate spoon treats!
