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