Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces semisweet dark chocolate squares or 4 ounces sweet dark chocolate squares, chopped
  • 1 12 tablespoons whipping cream
  • 18 teaspoon almond extract
  • 20 disposable spoons
  • 4 ounces vanilla flavored squares
  • to taste candy coating, melted

Directions

  1. Combine semisweet or sweet dark chocolate and whipping cream in a 1-cup liquid measuring cup.
  2. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) power 1 minute or until chocolate melts, stirring after 30 seconds.
  3. Stir in almond extract. Dip each spoon in melted chocolate covering bowl of spoon and 1/4 inch up handle;allow excess to drip off.
  4. Place spoons on waxed paper lined baking sheet; freeze 15 minutes or until set. Melt vanilla coating and put in heavy duty zip lock bag.
  5. Snip tiny hole in one corner of bag, and drizzle coating over chilled spoons.
  6. Leave on wax paper and store in refrigerator until ready to wrap.
  7. I bought Handi wrap with little X-mas trees and candy canes at a dollar store and plan to wrap about 3 together and tie with curling ribbon.
  8. I also guess you can substitute other extract flavors..mint, strawberry, Amaretto etc. for the almond flavoring...Happy dipping :-)

I made these spoons to put in Christmas food baskets that I am making for family members this year. They will be enjoyed in the coffee, cocoa and tea mixes I made for everyone!

Yummy recipe! I used orange extract and sprinkled with crushed orange flavored candies. Very easy to make - my kids helped. Thanks!
