I love peppermint and chocolate together but only during the winter. Is that kind of weird? In the summer if I accidentally make myself a peppermint hot chocolate out of the pantry I am appalled at the flavor but when it gets chilly I am so down with that flavor combo.

Whatever the reasoning come winter I put the two flavors together constantly. So when I had seen a spoon making mold I ordered one with the idea to melt peppermint candies in them and make peppermint spoons I could then chocolate dip and make fabulous. They wouldn’t be all white and red stripey and gorgeous, more like pink probably but they’d still taste fab. But then I saw some pre-made peppermint spoons at Walmart in the holiday aisle and I was all for it. I mean, they’re red and white stripey and pretty and already done. Boom! Now I could link to these on Amazon but people have gone insane charging $20 some odd a package and that’s ridiculous.

This is what you’re looking for. Mine came from Walmart and I want to say they were around $5 but my memory sucks sometimes. They DEFINITELY came from Walmart, though and I saw them the last visit so they might still have them in your area, too.

When I found some cute sprinkles just below the spoons it was on like nothing you’ve ever seen before. Let’s sweeten this day up a bit, shall we?

For this project you will need:

  • Peppermint spoons
  • Melting chocolate (see my recommendations below!)
  • Sprinkles, nonpareils, etc.

I’ve been dipping a lot of business in chocolate here lately. Like a freaking ton. I like this chocolate okay. You can accidentally overheat it so easily and then you’re kind of screwed because it goes from creamy and dippable to weird and chunky.

There are two kinds that I have found I like a lot. The Baker’s microwavable cups rock it hard core and taste darn good, too. I overheated a bit too much and it started to burn in the middle but I was able to scoop that business out and it was on. Because I can be forgetful even when I’m standing right in front of the thing, in this case the microwave, and get completely sidetracked.

The other kind I like is Ghiradelli melting wafers. Dang if these things aren’t amazing to the point that I can’t buy them anymore. They aren’t in a convenient cup like the others but they taste amazing. Like, I went through 2 bags to make just a few projects because I’d just sit there and eat them and eat them. They melt up super great, nice and thick and smooth and the finished dipped items can look truly professional. Huge win! They say they’re dark but it’s not like dark chocolate dark. Maybe they mean more of the color? Anywho…

Dip your spoon into the chocolate and turn to coat. Give a bit of a tap to help the excess chocolate drip off. Either dip the spoon in sprinkles or sprinkle on. You might need to push them into the chocolate a bit to get them to stick well.

Now I went after this business like it was glitter not thinking that I had just wasted a freaking ton of nonpareils. Well, they didn’t all go to waste :)

Now doesn’t that look like the perfect addition to a hot cup of coffee or even cocoa? Mmm!

With so many sprinkle options out there you can make these to match anything, including your dishes!

Speaking of which… How pretty is that mug up there? Well, guess what?!? I made it! Dang straight all by myself. I’ve already mentioned but I love these new PaintedByMe markers from iLoveToCreate and I made these lovelies over there! Check that post out here or click the pic above!

I hope you and yours are having a wonderful winter! Next time you’re at the store snap up these items and they can wait for a day when the kids are bored or snowed in. What a fun way to keep busy!

    Hey, these peppermint spoons are super cool Allison! I’ve never seen these before. It’s the perfect “sweet tooth” lovin’ snack for those (like myself) that just need a sweet snack every now and then.

    And though it seems kind of weird saying this now since the holidays are over (I am so freakin’ out of the loop here), these yummy spoons and sprinkles put me in the mood for some happy Christmas cheer! :)

    And no, I don’t think that peppermint and chocolate in winter is weird at all. It’s sort of like the whole candy cane thing I have. I only like eating them during Christmas or when it’s winter cold out. It just sort of seems to go together, don’t you think? But outside of that, I can’t bring myself to eat them any other time. And since we’re on the subject of what fits when, I’m the same way with Christmas music. From Thanksgiving through New Years, I can listen to Christmas music with no problem. But if I come across it on my music player at any other time of the year, I skip over it. I don’t know… listening to “Sleigh Ride” or “Carol Of The Bells” just doesn’t have the same appeal when it’s pushing 70 and 80 in July, you know?

    But anyway, these peppermint spoons are super cool Allison! And you made that mug?! SUPER AMAZING!!! I’m not at all surprised. Once again, your talent is super and superb!! :)
