This dessert is so simple, there’s no recipe required! Just dip plastic spoons into melted chocolate, refrigerate them for 30 minutes, allow chocolate to set, and cover with plastic wrap (and a bow, if you’re giving it as a gift!) If you’re feeling extra festive, you can sprinkle the wet chocolate with some holiday sprinkles or drizzle!
