You can use chocolate covered spoons as treats, place cards, or favors. I find them perfect both for Easter and Christmas.

The basic chocolate-covered spoons recipe is quite easy: melt chocolate and cover the spoons. All you have to do next is add a little creativity.

The first time I made chocolate coated spoons, I used small plastic spoons and made a little Spring garden on top.

The second time, I was a little concerned about using plastic spoons (the heat… on plastic?), so I used regular spoons from my vintage cutlery small collection. And added a lot of chocolate chips on top!

chocolate spoons diy with green grass and butterfly confetti

Ingredients for 4 spoons

  • 1.7-2.2 oz (50-60 gr) of dark chocolate (I use 70% chocolate)
  • Plastic, metallic or wood spoons


  • 1/4 cup of coconut flakes
  • green edible dye
  • sugar confetti (flowers, butterflies, Easter eggs)


  • chocolate chips/confetti


how to make chocolate spoons

For the Spring garden spoons – Color the coconut flakes with as many drops of color as necessary to get a green grass color.

Water-bath chocolate, fill in the spoons (placed on parchment paper), wait less than a minute for the temperature to decrease a bit.

Decorate with the coconut flakes and confetti or the chocolate chips.

Let dry completely.


enjoy your chocolate spoons!
