Dark Chocolate-Dipped Spoon

The instructions for making a chocolate-dipped spoon are in the name: Simply dip a spoon in melted chocolate, and chill it until it firms. We took it to the next level by dusting it with a loose leaf chai tea—ideally one that has components like whole clove, fennel seed and dried ginger. When melted into the Warm-Hearted from New York’s Seamstress, it creates a delicious chocolate swirl.

  • In a small, microwave-safe bowl, break up chocolate into small pieces and place in microwave on medium-high heat for 1 minute. Remove from microwave, stir and repeat heating in shorter intervals (15-20 seconds) stirring in between until the chocolate is completely melted.
  • Dip the bowl of a plastic teaspoon into melted dark chocolate and tap off the excess.
  • Dust with loose leaf chai tea, and set spoon on parchment paper to dry.
  • Chill in the refrigerator until firm.
