2 cups white chocolate chips
10-15 drops peppermint candy flavoring
¾ cup peppermint candies
35 to 45 heavy-duty plastic spoons
2 teaspoons solid shortening (optional)
2 large cookie sheets
quart-sized food storage bag
glass 1 cup measuring cup
Cover the cookie sheets with waxed paper. Unwrap and place peppermint candies in food storage bag. Crush the candies with rolling pin. Place crushed candy in a medium size bowl. Place one cup of white chocolate chips in glass measuring cup. Microwave chocolate chips at 50% power for 1 minute. Stir the chips gently. Continue microwaving at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate is melted and smooth. Important Note: Do Not over-heat the chocolate. Add 5 or 6 peppermint candy drops to each cup of chocolate and mix thoroughly. Important Note: If you wish to thin the chocolate simply stir in thoroughly 1 teaspoon solid shortening per cup of chocolate chips. Dip plastic spoons in melted chocolate to cover the bowl of the spoon. Important Note: If the chocolate thickens in the measuring cup, return it to the microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power. Stir gently. Immediately press the chocolate covered spoon into the crushed peppermint candy, holding the spoon at a diagonal. Place the spoon on the wax covered cookie sheet and let cool. Repeat the entire process with second cup of chocolate chips. Let the spoons cool thoroughly before wrapping individually with cellophane paper and a ribbon. Makes 35 to 45 chocolate coffee spoons. Excellent Christmas gifts for any coffee lover!

These are great using any kind of flavoring, you can put crushed peppermints, or sprinkles, even drizzle white chocolate over milk chocolate, or milk chocolate over white....They are so pretty, and can be used in hot chocolate, and tea, as well as coffee.....
