It’s hot chocolate season (if there is such a thing, I’m pretty sure I love it all year around, no?!) and as such we thought the perfect gift to give to the boy’s teachers would be hot chocolate spoons!! It’s super easy to make so they literally make it themselves and I just supervise. It requires chocolate, marshmallow and something to decorate so costs very little and, let’s be honest, you really can’t mess it up or make it anything other than super tasty!! If the boy’s teachers don’t like chocolate then…. well, I don’t know if I want such odd creatures teaching my kids!!
Here’s what you need:
- A spoon mould (I got mine from Lakeland for around £4, though I’m sure loads of places will do them!)
- Milk or dark chocolate
- Big marshmallows
- Chocolate sprinkles, chips, icing etc for decoration
Melt the chocolate over a double boiler of in the microwave. Pour into the mould, tap out to create a nice flat, even spoon and place into the fridge to cool until solid. Cut a slit into the side of marshmallow so that you can slot your spoon into the middle.
To decorate you can dip in chocolate again, and coat or you can wet the marshmallow slightly, add your sprinkles and leave to dry.
You can put these in a clear plastic gift bag, gifting them to family or teachers. Alternatively heat up some milk, stir in your spoon and enjoy a fresh hot chocolate! Yum.
