It's so easy to clean up! You can make this while watching TV, or even in your room - no need to be in the kitchen. How about making lots for your coworkers or friends? I've only eyeballed the ingredients. The amount depends on the size of the spoon, so make the minimum amount first. (It's easier to add more later)
Finely chop the chocolate bar and place in the corner of a plastic bag.
Sink in a cup full of boiling water and set it aside for a while.
Bring out the spoons! Insert a pen underneath the handle to adjust the curves - it needs to be horizontal when pouring in the chocolate.
After the chocolate has completely melted, chop off a tiny piece from the corner of the plastic bag. Squeeze the chocolate onto the spoon.
Top with nuts, sprinkles, or dragées, or decorate using white chocolate or chocolate writing pens So cute!
Set it aside in a cool place. Wrap it up! I recommend you use simple wrapping paper so that the inside is visible.
Story Behind this Recipe
I wanted to make Valentine's Day chocolates with stuff at home. I was also thinking about making a Valentine's lunch box for my husband, but a chocolate bento? That's when I came up with secretly switching his chopsticks to these spoons for a pleasant surprise.
See how they look so cute and different on spoons instead of aluminum liners? What's more, there's no dirty dishes! I made this while lounging in the kotatsu . You could also follow the same steps and make it easily in aluminum liners.
Make sure to use plastic spoons. The chocolate comes off easily because they are flexible and bendy. It won't come off of a metal spoon.
