chocolate covered mocha spoons I bet you’ve seen these beautiful chocolate spoons at stores during the holiday season! Do you know they’re actually super easy to make at home and you can customize them any way you like?! These beautiful and unique chocolate covered spoons are made with instant coffee – just place one into a large mug of hot milk and stir, then enjoy! You can also make these without the coffee for a caffeine-free drink. And for a minty twist, try adding a few drops of peppermint oil into the chocolate for mint mocha!

Perfect for the Holidays!

These chocolate spoons are the perfect gift to give to your family and friends during the holiday season! Just wrap them into goodie bags and add a bit of ribbon! Most craft stores will sell little plastic goodie bags, which are perfect for these spoons.

Ingredients & Supplies You’ll Need

  • Spoons: For this project, I went to a local thrift store and picked up a variety of vintage-looking spoons. I think they turned out great!  You can also use disposable plastic spoons.
  • Chocolate Melts: I love to decorate each spoon with a different design! Try alternating the spoons with white chocolate, dark chocolate and milk chocolate.
  • Decorations: I also added some sprinkles; feel free to use any color! And, for a bit of toffee flavor, I also added some toffee chips. Just keep in mind those will take a bit longer to melt!

How to Make Chocolate Covered Coffee Spoons

These fun and festive spoons are so fun to make! Here’s how I make them:
  1. Start by melting the chocolate melts! Melt each chocolate (dark, milk and white) in separate bowls. Melt the chocolate over water bath or double boiler. or in microwave. Melt the chocolate slowing, stirring frequently. If the chocolate starts to clump or doesn’t melt smoothly, add 1/2 teaspoon of shortening. 
  2. Make the chocolate coffee mixture. Combine half of the dark chocolate with the instant coffee and stir until well combined. Spoon this mixture into spoons as shown in video, making it smooth across the top. Place the spoons into refrigerator to set the chocolate quickly!
  3. Dip the chocolate coffee spoons into your choice of dark chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate and then add your desired garnishes. I also like to drizzle contrasting colors of chocolate to make the spoons extra special!
  4. Let the chocolate set completely before placing the spoons into decorative bags.

How to Use Coffee Spoons

To use these coffee spoons, heat a cup of milk or non-dairy milk until it’s steaming hot. Dip the spoons into the milk and let the chocolate milk for a couple minutes, then stir.
