Hot Chocolate Spoons Recipe

Share this post or pin it for later!

We received these sweet little silver spoons as a wedding gift to bring home (so many of my favorite things are antique treasures) but recently I was excited to repurpose them as hot chocolate spoons. All you need are some chocolate spoons to dip and stir them into hot milk to make these super tasty hot chocolate spoons.

You can mix things up by incorporating peanut butter chips, mini marshmallows, crushed peppermint, dried fruit, and nuts. If you want to have some fun, you can add in a splash of Kahlua to make adult-friendly hot chocolate.

Seriously, so easy! While you’ll definitely want to enjoy these yourself, these hot chocolate spoons would also make a very sweet Christmas gift too.

Read on for the full deets of how to make these cute and yummy hot chocolate spoons. I’m in love with this recipe and how little time it requires.

If you’re in the Bay Area, try Alameda Flea Market on Sundays—I always find a few treasures. Or better yet, peruse a local antique market with a friend.

Hot Chocolate Spoons Recipe

5 chocolate dipped spoons

Hot Chocolate Spoons, by Blogger What The Fab


1 cup chopped chocolate (dark, milk chocolate, and/or white)

Toppings of choice: freeze-dried fruit, fun sprinkles, cocoa powder, finely chopped nuts, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, peanut butter chips, peppermint


5 silver spoons (avoid plastic spoons)


1. Line a baking sheet with parchment and set it aside (it needs to be small enough to fit in your refrigerator later).

2. To melt the chocolate, set up a double boiler: fill a small pot with water and simmer, then place a heat-safe bowl on top with the melted chocolate inside. Stir gently as chocolate melts.

3. Remove chocolate from heat.  Dip one spoon into the chocolate, then twirl over the bowl to cut off the chocolate stream.  Gently rest on parchment and sprinkle immediately with toppings of choice.  (If you want to drizzle a different type of chocolate, let the original harden first.)

4. Repeat with remaining spoons and transfer to the refrigerator to set.

5. Put the head of each spoon into an individual cellophane bag and tie it with a ribbon to make a gift!  (Otherwise, store remaining spoons in the fridge.)

Psst! A Few Recipe Notes:

Note: If chocolate re-hardens, return it to the double boiler and gently melt again (Don’t add water or butter! it will cause the chocolate to separate.)

You could make an iced hot chocolate by adding in a few ice cubes.
