For coffee or cocoa: Buy a package of sturdy plastic spoons, preferably in festive colors. Dip them in chocolate (melted chocolate chips work well) and shake off the excess. Place them on wax paper and sprinkle with crushed peppermint candy. After they dry, wrap them in cellophane and tie with a ribbon. Put a few spoons in a coffee mug along with some individual hot cocoa or coffee packets.
I've heard of this before, another suggestion of crushed candies to use are hard orange flavored candies or butterscotch candies. Also, chocolate mint hard candies would be really delicious.
I read some place about giving a variety of flavored coated spoons in a mug with cocoa or coffee packets wrapped together for gifts for teachers, or other recipients. Great idea!
