A few weeks ago, I posted a photo of the cutest candy spoons made by Mr P, aka Delicious Delicious Delicious and could not wait to make them.
For complete instructions, be sure to check out the Delicious, Delicious, Delicious Blog. Here are a few things that I discovered while making mine. I used Wilton Candy Melts and they turned out great. After pouring the chocolate, I waited until the edges just started to harden and then added the decorations. If you don’t wait, your decorations will sink and if you wait too long they will not stick. A delicate balance to be sure!
Another tip is to tap the spoon on the counter to remove any air bubbles and use a sterilized tweezers (dedicated to food use) to help pick up the tiny decorations.
I can’t wait to use these in my coffee and cocoa! I may also make some for Valentine’s gifts.
They are also adorable wrapped in cellophane and tied with a bow.
Next year we will be making these as part of our annual Christmas candy making party. Hmmm ….. maybe I will make some for Saint Patrick’s Day! Irish coffee anyone?
Since I had a lot of candy decorations left over I decided to try making sugar cookies. This was my first attempt at making flood filled sugar cookies. I need a lot more practice, but I was encouraged with my first attempt. Martha Stewart makes it look so easy.
Have fun and please stay tuned for my next video. I love how my new project turned out and I think you will too!
