These chocolate dipping spoons are yummy, easy for kids to make with a little help from a grown-up, and great to give as gifts. Stir them into a hot beverage and you have an instant burst of chocolate to your coffee or cocoa.

Next I melted white chocolate chips in the microwave and spooned them into a plastic Ziploc bag. I secured the zipper and snipped a tiny piece off the corner of the bag, making an impromptu pastry bag.

Then my kids got to decorating, squeezing the white chocolate in a zig-zag pattern across the milk chocolate on the spoons. Again, we allowed the chocolate to harden.

Great idea - I'm going to give these as gifts with a jar filled with hot cocoa powder on the bottom and marshmallows on top.
