chocolate dipped Halloween spoons


It’s already getting chilly here in Ohio and by Halloween night it will be downright cold! Each year our entire neighborhood sits outside to hand out candy… the reason… there are so many children coming through the neighborhood that there would be no time to open and close the door. It’s crazy! So we all make a party of it and accept that we’re all going to be popsicles for a few hours.

We pull out the firepit, make coffee and hot cocoa… and this year, we’ll also be making chocolate dipped Halloween spoons with spooky eyes and lime green chocolate (flavored vanilla) wafer melts from Wilton! I picked both up at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores and the orange and black spoons from Target.

The “how to” steps are super easy ~ melt the chocolates in a glass bowl (double boiler method, or 10 second intervals in the microwave, your call!), dip your spoons, add candy eyes, allow to cool on wax paper and finally wrap in cello bags if you like.

It’s that easy and now you can get your spook on!

  1. […] These are great for a party or for Halloween treats. Melt some chocolate or coloured candy coating, carefully fill a spoon and add some edible eyes and sprinkles to create your own spooky face. http://blog.thecelebrationshoppe.com/2012/10/09/chocolate-dipped-halloween-spoons/ […]
