Makes 16 hot chocolate spoon favors
- 16 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
- coconut extract
- 1 cup unsweetened, finely-shredded coconut (available in the bulk foods aisle)

Create the Chocolate Spoons
Start with a standard, 16-well ice cube tray. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the coconut shavings evenly among the wells. Melt the chocolate chips and combine with a few drops of coconut extract.
Fill each ice cube tray space with the melted chocolate. Sprinkle the remaining coconut shavings over the top of the melted chocolate.
Stick a silver teaspoon into each one and hold until the chocolate sets a bit. Place in the refrigerator until the chocolate is completely set.
Package and Present
Download and print the hot chocolate tags onto the white cardstock. Cut out the tags and punch a hole in the corner of each. Place each hot chocolate spoon in a cellophane bag. Tie the tags on with the colorful ribbon of your choice. Each spoon will flavor 8 ounces of steamy milk.
