  • Crushed Hard Candies, like peppermint or toffee, Colored sugar or Crushed Cookie Crumbs to sprinkle on the chocolate spoons
  • Chocolate flavoring oils. You can add flavoring oils to the chocolate while melting.


  1. Start by lining several cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. It's time to melt the chocolate. There are two ways to melt your chocolate either in a double boiler or in the microwave, using the microwave is the simplest way. Just be careful when melting in the microwave to not overcook. Place chocolate in the Microwave-safe bowl and melt chocolate in microwave oven at medium power for 1–1 1/2 minutes.
  3. Remove from microwave and stir, if your chocolate is not melted return to microwave and repeat heating. Heat chocolate until there are small lumps remaining, remove from the microwave and continue to stir to complete melting, and the chocolate is smooth.
  4. Dip each spoon in the chocolate, when coating the spoon be sure to cover the entire base and also go up the handle just a little, maybe about a 1/4". Tap the spoon gently on the bowl to remove any excess chocolate.
  5. Place spoon on the parchment paper lined cookie sheets. If the bowl of chocolate begins to harden while you are coating your spoons just microwave at medium power for 30 seconds and stir.
  6. Decorating the spoons adds a special touch that can help incorporate your wedding colors or theme; you can decorate with sprinkles, crushed candies or drizzle with contrasting colors of chocolate. Make sure to add your garnishes while the chocolate is still soft.
  7. Refrigerate 10-15 minutes or until chocolate is hardened.
  8. Wrap each spoon in a candy bag or plastic wrap, then tie ribbon around each to make sure the wrapping stays in place. Remember to attach the personalized favor tags before tying the bow.
  9. Be sure to keep your spoons in a dry, cool, and dark area until they are going to be used.
