Place each spoon in a flat cellophane bag (we also used a cardboard insert for stability) and tie with kitchen twine or ribbon. To serve, stir chocolate spoon into 8 ounces hot milk.

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces chocolate melts

How to Make It

  1. Place chocolate melts in a medium microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir and microwave for 30-second intervals until melted and smooth. Spoon chocolate into ice cube trays using about 1 Tbsp. in each of 24 squares. Decorate with toppings and insert spoon into each square. Refrigerate until completely set, about 30 minutes, and gently remove from the cube tray.
