DIY Hot Chocolate Spoons 

Hot Chocolate DIY

Our creative contributor, Arin Agase, is back today to share a delectably sweet tutorial for homemade chocolate spoons! Plus, you can find her thoughts on combinations and gift wrapping below.

‘Tis the season for extra treats! If you’re looking for a tasty DIY, I’ve got the scoop (did you catch that one!?). Hot chocolate spoons are perfect for stirring up a piping cup of hot cocoa or coffee. If you’re feeling festive, host a holiday party and feature a delicious hot chocolate bar with all the trimmings. These spoons are a great gift option, too! They make cute stocking stuffers, office treats and beyond, but we won’t judge you if you save them all for yourself.

Try making your spoons with a variety of chocolate and candy. My favorite option? Crushed peppermint and white chocolate. It reminds me of my favorite holiday drink: the peppermint mocha. Simply dip your spoon in the coffee, sit back and relax. And you thought your coffee or hot chocolate couldn’t get any better! A few other combinations to try: mini chocolate chips and white chocolate, mini marshmallows and milk chocolate, extra sprinkles, caramel drizzle and toffee.

DIY Hot Chocolate Spoons

Ingredients and Supplies

  • Mini chocolate chips
  • White chocolate chips/milk chocolate chips
  • Candy cane (to crush)
  • Caramel (I purchased pre-made caramel drizzle)
  • Candy toppings of choice
  • Sprinkles
  • Mini marshmallows
  • Plastic spoons (I chose gold, my favorite color!)
  • Wax paper


  1. Begin by melting chocolate or caramel (whichever your heart desires!). Follow package for instructions, but I stirred for 15-second intervals. If you overheat, the chocolate/caramel will harden.
  2. Dip your spoon into the melted chocolate. Remove excess chocolate and place on wax paper.
  3. Immediately sprinkle with a topping of your choice. Lay flat to dry.
  4. Enjoy!
