• Delegate dipping, sprinkling and wrapping to different people or teams.
• Double-dipping is encouraged for spoons. Dip first into dark chocolate, then after dark chocolate has set, dip into white chocolate, leaving a hint of the dark chocolate showing. Or, drizzle melted chocolate in a zigzag design over spoons.
• For a larger gift, put several wrapped chocolate spoons in holiday mugs. Include pouches of cocoa mix or special coffees.
• Keep a basket of chocolate spoons, wrapped and tied with ribbon, by your entryway. As guests leave, surprise them with a sweet treat.
