Peppermint is one of my very favorite hot chocolate add-ins. With candy cane spoons I have the perfect cup of peppermint hot chocolate every time.
Candy Cane Spoons are so fun and delicious too.
Recently Jenn and I were walking through Walmart grabbing hot chocolate for a birthday party. While we were there, I saw some fun peppermint spoons. I thought they would be so cute for the party but $4.99 for 6 seemed a little expensive.
Fast-forward a couple aisles to the Christmas department and there were spoon molds! You can find the Wilton Spoon Mold here for $7.99. I figured it was way better to pay $7.99 once and get to make all the candy cane spoons I want, especially since I wanted one for each child at the birthday party!
I’m so glad I was able to find the molds because my kids loved them! They were pretty easy to make and we can make them over and over again.
Ready to make your own Candy Cane Spoons?
To make your own candy cane spoons you’re going to need just 2 things:
6-8 regular size candy canes
Silicone spoon mold
So easy right? It’s amazing how easy these are to make.
Before you start
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees and wash your candy cane mold.
Put your candy canes in a zip-lock bag (I like using the freezer bags because they’re a little thicker. Use a rolling pin, kitchen mallet, or something else heavy to crush up your candy canes.
Next time I make these I think I’m going to try putting the candy canes into my blender. Wouldn’t it be nice if it could do all the work for us?
Let’s make candy cane spoons.
Place spoon mold on a cookie sheet and spoon the crushed candy canes into the spoon molds. Try to keep candy cane pieces in the molds and not on the outside as much as possible.
Bake for 10-15 minutes until the candy canes are melted. Bring them out of the oven and sprinkle more crushed candy canes in the thin spots.
Bake for another 5-10 minutes until melted. Remove from the oven and cool completely. It’s important to let them completely cool before removing them.
When removing from the mold you need to be very careful as to not break them. If there are thin spots those areas will be more fragile which is why I like to look for thin spots before removing from the mold.
The great thing about these candy cane spoons are not only are they delicious on their own you can dress them up.
Dip the ends in melted chocolate chips, white chocolate, or even sprinkles. These were also fun to wrap up with a package of hot cocoa and give as gifts to Hudson’s preschool class.
