A little treat for Easter to make and gift.
MATERIALS 18 Melamine Table Spoons for Gifting | 1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips | 1 Large Baking Tray | Wax Paper to fit baking tray | Heat-Proof Measuring Cup | 1 Teaspoon Butter (optional) | Speckled Chocolate Eggs | Ribbon | Cellophane
MAKES 18 SPOONS
DIRECTIONS 1 – Cover baking trays with wax paper. 2 – Place the cup of chocolate chips in a heat-proof measuring cup. Microwave chocolate chips at 50% power for 1 minute. Remove cup and stir. Continue microwaving at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Do not over-heat chocolate. To thin chocolate, add butter and stir gently. 3 – Dip plastic spoons in melted chocolate to cover the bowl of the spoon. Remove excess chocolate by tapping tip gently against the inside of the measuring cup. 4 – Push speckled chocolate eggs into melted chocolate. 5 – Cool spoons thoroughly before wrapping individually with cellophane and ribbon.
GOOD IDEAS If the chocolate in the cup thickens, return to the microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power, stir gently. Use dark chocolate for grown up favours for a more sophisticated taste and appeal. Use clear cellophane to wrap so that the chocolate can be seen. Replace melamine spoons with plastic or wooden tablespoons for inexpensive favours.
