These will be a wonderful addition to the coffees and teas that you will be making with the previously posted recipes...or they are marvelous just by themselves. They are so easy (the chocolate ones) that my 8 year old made them herself after I melted the chocolate...they really are nice and got raves from all I gave them to.Get some good quality plastic spoons to start with-no fl
- plastic spoon
- almond extract or Frangelico or peppermint extract or anise extract or Kahlua
- Melt chocolate till it is liquid, watch out that it doesn't scorch; you can do this in the microwave.
- Add extract or liquor of choice.
- Then just dip the spoon into the chocolate and lay the spoons with their handles over the edge of a wax paper lined cookie sheet till set.
- You can drizzle white chocolate in a design over dark or milk chocolate or dip 1/2 of spoon in dark and 1/2 in white (the best flavors are mocha, mint, plain, raspberry) Don't just dip lightly, you want a nice puddle in the spoon part and part way up the handle.
- I wrap these in clear plastic bags tied with raffia and a tag stating the flavor.
- I have seen these for$1 1/2 EACH!
- These are marvelous with coffee or cocoa and make enough so each family member gets 2 spoons each.
- They will clamor for more!
Suzie Boozie - the trick to melting chocolate in the microwave is to add a bit of shortening. Just a teaspoon or so, depending on how much chocolate. I also find it best to use a low or med. heat and check & stir often.
I gave this recipe a low rating because I'm not sure how you could melt the chocolate in the microwave without it burning (like mine did). Instead, I suggest you just put the broken chocolate and flavoring into a heavy saucepan over low heat while stirring constantly until it's smooth, then immediately remove from heat and dip the spoons. Also, you need to refrigerate the spoons for half an hour. If there is some trick to doing this correctly in the microwave, please tell us (in detail) as I imagine it to be much easier. Thanks.
