DIY: Chocolate-dipped

DIY hot chocolate spoon

I love chocolate, and that’s no surprise to just about anyone who has ever met me. So I wanted my first DIY project on the new MarryThis! blog (I’ll be doing them regularly!) to be something delicious. I love the idea of sending your guests home at the end of your wedding with a treat for later. I went to a wedding last summer where they sent us each home with two apples and homemade caramel dip (YUM.) and it was such a sweet way to head home.

These chocolate-dipped spoons are a fun treat for later plus a wedding detail with vintage flair. Your guests can take them home and stir them into warm milk for cocoa, or stir them into their morning coffee for a sweet treat. I added some sea salt in my version — you can leave it off if that’s not your thing.

Melt the chocolate according to package instructions, then dip each spoon in, getting enough chocolate on it for a nice mug of hot cocoa. Set them out on a plate or cookie sheet, sprinkle with sea salt and transfer to the refrigerator. Let them chill thoroughly for at least an hour, then wrap with the small bags and tie with the ribbons. Keep the favors in a cool place until the wedding, and then either set them at each place or all together near the exit so guests can pick one up on their way home.
