Hoot Chocolate Spoons


Let me start by showing you my fail:
For my first few attempts, I dipped the spoons in green chocolate.  I thought I would make festive Christmas Owls.  I used both large and small marshmallows for eyes, buy they ended up looking a little like Muppets or aliens.  
FAIL!

After lots more trial and error, this is what I finally came up with.


 Step 1: Place mini-chocolate chips (flat side down) on a non-stick surface (wax paper will work).
 Step 2: Pipe melted white chocolate on top of mini-chips.  Let harden. 
I also melted some yellow chocolate and piped out some beaks.
 Step 3: Put 1/2 a bag of candy melts (chocolate chips taste better, but they will look chalky when they harden unless to temper them correctly)in the microwave for 30 seconds. Stir. Repeat. Stir.
Step 4:  Dip a plastic spoon in chocolate candy melts  about 3/4 of the way up the spoon.  Use a toothpick to from ears.

 Step 5: Before chocolate hardens add eyes and beaks. 


I am sure those of you out there with some cake decorating skills, could make these look really awesome.


I am adding this in with my Hoot Chocolate bags for neighbor gifts.

  10. These are darling. I have often wondered just how they are achieved. Thank you for sharing this today. I really have no cake decorating skills so I am not sure how successful I would be with this project.
