Looking for the perfect stocking stuffer? These delicious vintage chocolate dipping spoons are perfect for holiday gift giving and cost under $10 bucks. Use them to dip in hot chocolate or to spruce up your favorite coffee or latte.

I've been collecting these spoons for a while now. The best place to find them is garage sales, estate sales, thrift stores & antique shops. Don't pay more than $1.00 for each spoon. I have found them for as low as 10 cents and bought 3 vintage spoons together for $1.00.I totally scored and found one that had chocolate engraved on the bottom. One of them has the year 1847 engraved on the back.

I just love vintage!

I used 3 different kinds of chocolate, including a Mexican chocolate that was inspired by this Mexican Drinking Chocolate Instructable.

I like this idea. I find lots of silverware at estate sales and auctions. To let you know, 1847 is the year when Rogers (silversmith) was formed. It is their "trademark" (1847 Rogers). Still, like the use of cool spoons!

i live is pakistan and the wether over here is unbearable.will these choclate melt if used in hot weather?

When chocolate is exposed to heat it will melt. If you leave it out in the sun, it will melt quicker. Refrigerate or freeze them until you are ready to use them and they will last longer.
okay.. so if i want to gift it to some one, do i need to freeze it ahead of time ?
wow this is so cool! i like the idea and the snowman decorations are so cute :) ! i really want to give these a go they look really nice! ;)

Wow, that's so smart! You could even add flavors, like caramel or peppermint in little pockets under the chocolate. Hot chocolate on a spoon!

Thanks! I have seen these made with plastic spoons, but for gift giving I felt these very more appropriate.

Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have tried to figure out what I wanted to do with some old spoons. Thanks for sharing. I had plans of sugar cubes but this looks good too.
