Spooktacular Spoons are perfect for Halloween party bags or for handing out to trick-or-treaters.


  • Wax paper

LINE baking sheet with wax paper.

PLACE morsels and shortening in medium, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10- to 15-second intervals, stirring just until melted; cool slightly.

These are soooooo easy to make and a great gift to give!! I made them for Christmas, and used chocolate chips as a 2nd color and did designs in the spoon. EASY!!! I got rave reviews!!! Cut a little paper strip with your name and message, hole punch it, and attach it with your ribbon closing the plastic bag for added touch!!

This is easy and a great extra touch that goes good with hot chocolate. You can even flavor the chocolate with cinnamon or rasberry flavored oils. I have done this in the past with rave reviews.

These were a hit with all the neighbor kids, however I wouldn't recommend doing this project all by yourself. Since my only daughter is two, I don't think I'll be doing this again until she can help me out. Then it will be much more satisfying.
