DIY Xmas Gift; Chocolate Covered Spoons

I have seen these types of spoons before, a chunk of chocolate to stir in hot milk to create hot cocoa. Now I wanted to make them myself, in a smaller fancier version that makes your tastebuds tingle.
The one on the left is Dark Chili and the one on the left is White Vanilla-bean.
What you need;
-Plain blocks of chocolate (dark & white)
-Wooden Spoons
-Chili (from a grinder)
-Fresh vanilla bean
1. Break both chocolates and put in two bowls, add bit of chili flakes into one and the scraped vanilla bean into the other.
2. Bring a pot of water to boil and place the bowl in the pot*, stir occasionally till the chocolate is melted evenly.
*(this method is called "au bain-marie")
3. Scoop the spoons in the chocolate and place on a lined baking sheet 
leave them to cool down and refrigerate for a bit till chocolate is completely hard.
4. Package them in a plastic baggie and label them with custom-made labels.

  1. OMG this is too cute! Love ittt

  2. Hai Femi! This is brilliant. I really, really want to do this and just to save me some search time, where can one find wooden spoons?

    1. Hmmm... I know of a store on the Albert Cuyp Market in Amsterdam (if your ever here) they have all sorts of cool spices and teas and all that jazz in little baggies and all sorts of kitchen utilities, thats where I got them.
      But check party supply stores. Orrr order from
      Good luck! let me know how they end up! xo

    2. Thank you! I wasn't sure I would get them on time so I got a 'spoon shaped silicone mold' that's made for hot chocolate instead. Exact same concept, just a tad different. Other than that, I'm following your instructions to a T.

    3. Sounds awesome! Share with, when you have made them :)
