    BETH MOODENBAUGH from Wichita, FL

    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!!

    Get Some Help!

    Brigette Davis from Moscow, ID

    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.

    My scout group made these one night in lieu of their weekly "regular snacks". Boys had a good time making these & hope they enjoyed eating just as much. I'm sure they did! Don't think they'll last until Halloween though - they liked way too much.

    These are great to include in a nice mug with hot chocolate mix, wrapped in clear decorated wrap and tied with a bow for Christmas too! I made up both white chocolate and milk chocolate for my mugs. These are very inexpensive gifts for neighbors and co-workers and the spoons add just the right touch!

    Making Some More Spoon

    TRISH BALLARD from MILLERSTOWN, PA

    I mean SOON :o These also look adorable when you replace the white morsels with orange melting wafers. I also did some dipped in a mixture of both white and some milk chocolate (made a light brown) and used chocolate chips, chocolate covered raisins...we had lots of fun experimenting with various candies. These would be cute at Christmas, dipped in red, fashioned into Santa Clauses. Or dipped in light blue and made into snow people. The possibilites are almost endless, and very exciting :o Have fun!
