A couple of weeks ago the lovely people over at Lakeland asked if I would review one of their chocolate moulds, which was brilliant timing as I was planning on grabbing this on my next trip to the shop anyway.
The idea of easter spoons has been playing on my mind for a couple of months after seeing these gorgeous party favours on Sweetapolita and many adverts for Cadbury’s easter offerings. They make a fun change from the usual eggs you get a this time of year, whilst still playing on the tradition.
The mould was really easy to use, I was a little wary of taking the chocolates out as I was afraid they would break, but the silicone easily peeled away.
I added a couple of teaspoons of olive oil to the melted chocolate which makes it easier to work with and gives the finished result a shine. Unfortunately for this batch I left them on the side as I heated up the second lot of chocolate and the warmth caused the shine to dull.
The sprinkles were added using a little melted chocolate after the spoons were turned out. This time I made solid chocolate spoons but they look sturdy enough to hold a filling.
Whilst I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with covering things in chocolate, this was surprisingly easy, and makes for a great personalised gift, or treat with a coffee at the end of a meal.

Disclosure: Although I did receive the chocolate mould without charge, I was not paid for this review and all opinions are my own. I would never review something I wouldn’t buy myself.
