How To Make The Chocolate Peppermint Spoons

  1. One of the first things you will need to do is make sure your chosen spoon mold is clean and dry 
  2. Gather your food coloring and piping bags in preparation for the melted chocolate. 
  3. Melt the white Almond bark chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir it and then warm it in 15-second intervals stirring each time until its melted and smooth. Once the chocolate is smooth, split it into 3 small bowls.
  4. One bowl will stay white, leave the most chocolate in this bowl. The next bowl will be colored red. Using your red food coloring add about 4-6 drops into the small bowl, and mix it until it is red. Repeat the same steps for the green food coloring in the last bowl. 
  5. Place each color in a separate piping bag, tie the ends and get ready to use your spoon mold.
  6. Starting with the Red, cut a small hole on the tip of your piping bag. In each spoon slot, make small diagonal lines, starting from the top of the spoon to the bottom. Try and leave a finger-tip size gap in between each line. 
  7. Once each slot has red lines, repeat the same steps for the green lines.
  8. Once there are green lines in each slot, cut the tip of your white piping bag and use it to fill in all of those gaps but avoid completely filling up the slot, save room for the brown chocolate. 
  9. Now pick up the mold and tap it on the table or surface you are using to spread the chocolate evenly and to push up any air bubbles. 
  10. Set the mold to the side and melt the brown Almond bark Chocolate, following the same directions as when melting the white chocolate. Then place the melted chocolate in a piping bag, tie the end, and cut the tip. 
  11. Grab the spoon mold with red, green, and white chocolate. Check it to make sure it's not solid. If it’s solid put it in the microwave for 5-10 seconds to warm it again. Tap it on the table to push up any bubbles. Now use the brown Almond bark to fill the rest of the mold. 
  12. Once every spoon slot is full, you can add your crushed peppermint or sprinkles. 
  13. Place the mold flatly in the freezer. You can use a small tray or baking sheet to place the mold on if you don't have a flat surface in your freezer. Let the mold stay in the freezer for 20 minutes.
  14. After 20 Minutes remove the mold from the Freezer and put it on a cool dry surface.
  15. Tap the top of a few spoons to make sure they are solid, then carefully remove the spoons from the molds 1 at a time.  
  16. Once the Spoons are out,  place them on a plate or another dry surface with wax paper or parchment paper and they are ready to enjoy your hot chocolate spoons!

Recipe Variations

Can’t find any crushed peppermint? You can buy some peppermint candies or use candy canes and crush them into small pieces with a food processor. 

Want to use different chocolate? Chocolate is all down to personal preference. Dark chocolate would work well with this recipe. 

What about mini marshmallows? If you have small ones you could stick them in the chocolate just before the chocolate spoons begin to set. We all know that hot chocolate sometimes needs the mallows.

Tips & Tricks 

  • Almond Bark contains no Almonds. It’s just the name of the chocolate candy melts. 
  • To get spoons out of the mold safely we like to start by stretching the mold. We pull on both ends of the mold a bit so it separates from the spoons. From there we remove each spoon separating it from the mold one at a time.
  • If the spoons break while coming out of the mold, just warm up some of the chocolate in the piping bag for 10-20 seconds. Put a drop of the warm chocolate where it is broken, reattach the pieces, place them on a flat surface and let them dry.
  • The peppermint pieces are optional. They can just be chocolate spoons.
