Here is another of Jan’s recipes that she shared with us at our Christmas Branch meeting….Chocolate Spoons! Another recipe that is super versatile…you can simply change the flavour by changing the liqueur used…or leave out and give the kids a real treat! A fabulous Christmas gift or enjoy at the end of a fun filled Christmas Day!!
1 MC Sugar

1 MC Milk Chocolate bits
1 MC Dark Chocolate bits
½ MC Liqueur of Choice (Baileys, Rum, Tia Maria, etc)
14 Wooden Spoons
1 cup of Milk Chocolate extra

3. Then 8 minutes, 50 degrees, Speed 3, the mix will melt and tighten.
4. Add the Liqueur and mix 30 seconds Speed 6, until the liqueur in mixed in and mixture is firm.
5. In muffin tray line with pan, place in the spoon and roll 1 rounded tablespoon of mixture into a ball and push into the tin so that the spoon is standing up and the top of the mixture is flattened. Put into the fridge to chill (I put it into the freezer).
6. When this is all hardened add the marshmallow to the top sticking it to mixture by first dipping it into a little melted chocolate.
7. Melt the rest of the milk chocolate and put into a coffee cup. Dip then drain the spoon and mixture into the chocolate to halfway up the marshmallow, place onto baking paper until set.
8. Put into the clear cellophane bag or wrap, and decorate as desired with ribbon tag, and instructions for use.
(Apologies for the photo…Jan would not be happy with this quick happy snap that I took before we all had our hot chocolates!!! They actually look much more gorgeous in “real life” but posting anyway to give you an idea of how they look).
