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.

  14. Am Here To Give My Testimony About A Doctor Who Helped Me In My Life. I Was Infected With HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS In 2019, I Went To Many Hospitals For Cure But There Was No Solution, So I Was Thinking How Can I Get A Solution Out So That My Body Can Be Okay. One Day I Was In The River Side Thinking Where I Can Go To Get Solution. So A Lady Walked To Me Telling Me Why Am I So Sad And I Open Up All To Her Telling Her My Problem, She Told Me That She Can Help Me Out, She Introduce Me To A Doctor Who Uses Herbal Medication To Cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS And Gave Me His Email, So I Mail Him. He Told Me All The Things I Need To Do And Also Give Me Instructions To Take, Which I Followed Properly. Before I Knew What Is Happening After Two Weeks The HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS That Was In My Body Got Vanished . So If You Are Also Heart Broken And Also Need A Help, You Can Also contact Him Through Dr. Oyagu reach him oyaguherbalhome@gmail.com visit his website https://oyaguspellcaster.wixsite.com/oyaguherbalhome Or whatsapp him via +2348101755322
