Mint-Chocolate Coffee Spoons (A quick and easy way to enjoy mint-chocolate coffee!)
My sister-in-law makes these, and they sell them at school events to raise money for parochial school where her son is enrolled. She says they "sell like hotcakes." Suggested price: 2 for $1. If you want to make gifts for people for birthdays or Christmas or other special occasions, or as party favors, coffee spoons work well for that too.
• Ordinary plastic spoons
• Bars of Hershey's chocolate
• Hard peppermint candy or, for something different, try dinner mints
• Saran Wrap or other plastic wrap
• Short pieces of ribbon
Melt chocolate. Dip plastic spoons in chocolate. Lay spoons on wax paper. Before chocolate sets, place a mint in middle of spoon.
When chocolate has cooled and hardened, cover spoon with Saran Wrap (or other plastic wrap). Tie a ribbon around handle of spoon to hold plastic wrap in place. (Use colored plastic wrap and coordinating colors for ribbon, if you prefer.)
