Eat: Easter Chick Spoons
What is up with me and things on a stick?
The original post was for painted spoons as placeholders at the Easter meal, but I thought these could be a cute snack that also wouldn’t take too long to make or fill my son’s belly up with too much sugar, since the spoons only get a thin coating of candy. (I hope nobody thinks I give my son too many treats because I’ve got to be honest with you. Those egg popsicles that I thought were so great, he ate about two licks of it and then asked for it to be warmed up. So treat fail.)
So these little chicks were a snap to put together. I used Candy Melts and spoons (and a styrofoam plate over a shallow bowl to hold the spoons while they dried.)
So first I melted the orange candy melts (I would have used yellow if I had any left) and dipped the spoons in it. I allowed them to dry on my styrofoam plate and then dipped them again to make the coating a little more smooth.
Then I put chocolate and red candy melts in a piping bags and drew little chick faces and legs on the spoons. And that’s it!
I tried to add a little more detailing to a a couple of them, but I decided less was more in this case.
How cute would these be poking out of the Easter grass in your kids’ Easter basket? Or you could put a little clear baggie around them, tie with a string, and they would be adorable little treats for classmates.
