If you're rocking a killer coffee bar at your wedding, adding these DIY mocha spoons for stirring in delicious chocolate flavor is ultra-fancy. You'll never believe how fast and easy they are to whip up last-minute. A little chocolate, white chocolate, or colored melting candy, some plastic spoons, a smidge of edible glitter or sprinkles… and you're set. It’s a melt it, chill it, and you’re done sitch.
Then it's all about setting them next to your coffee station for swirling and melting into decadent chocolate mocha coffee. We tried it with Green Mountain Coffee Organic Ethiopia Yirgacheffe and loved it! There are more than 50 distinct varieties of Green Mountain Coffee available to brew in a Keurig®, so you’re sure to please every guest’s palette.
Want to see how these mocha spoons are made?
Find some yummy chocolate (people will totally just stick them straight in their mouths, so it has to taste good!), melt it in the microwave, spoon it into the plastic spoons, decorate, and chill in the freezer. You can find all the details down below…
Pro tip for spooning on the chocolate: use a thin book to keep the spoons level. Just don’t use one that will be ruined by a little chocolate. If you do spill a little, let it dry and scrape it right off. No bigs.
Lay out your spoons…
Once you're done, you can set them up at your coffee bar. Just provide the coffee, like from our awesome sponsor Keurig®, which offers limitless beverage options at the touch of a button, and you're done. Plus, if you’re looking to dress the coffee bar with your wedding colors, there’s a wide variety of Keurig® brewer colors to choose from across several models, such as the K250 in Turquoise or K15 in Red. You can easily find colorful spoons to match!
DIY mocha spoons:
6 oz chocolate (any kind: milk, white, dark), chopped
Sprinkles, dragée, small candies, edible glitter, etc.
24 plastic spoons
Some spatulas, book, or similar for resting the spoons and keeping them level
- Place spoons on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, resting the spoon handles on a spatula or book, to keep them level while filling.
- Temper the chocolate in a glass bowl in the microwave, by warming for 10-15 second intervals and stirring.
- When the chocolate is almost completely melted, stir until smooth.
- With another spoon, drizzle the melted chocolate into the plastic spoons, until mostly full, leaving a little for the decoration. Slide the spoon around gently to make the chocolate even.
- Add sprinkles and other decoration on top of the chocolate.
- Place the cookie sheet in the freezer for about 20 minutes to set and keep stored in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
