This a brilliant idea for a simple but indulgent gift for a very special person. You don't need to be a good cook and you don't have to be artistic to be able to make these tasty treats. Use plastic disposable spoons if you like, but what is really nice is if you can find some fancy vintage spoons in a second hand store.
Variation: use white chocolate, crushed candy canes, and chocolate sprinkles.
This is a good way to use up leftover bits of this and that. Put several in a plastic bag and tie with a pretty ribbon. Makes a nice little gift by itself or with a coffee mug.
Source: This recipe is my own. I came up with it one night when I needed some little Christmas gifts and had nothing but little bits left in my kitchen.

I've seen a similar version of this before. Can used crushed candies such as red hots or cinnamon discs, butterscotch or peppermint hard candies, instead of the marshmallows. Can be used for coffees, hot chocolate, etc. Wrap & decorate for whatever the occasion. Give as gifts or sell at bake sales.
These spoons are great to just munch on or stir your hot chocolate.
Take a small plastic or clay pot and add a handful of these with the handle down. It makes a great gift.
These are good for coffee or cocoa gifts. 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.

My sister-in-law makes these, and they sell them at school events to raise money for the parochial school where her son is enrolled. She says they "sell like hotcakes." Suggested price: 2 for $1.

Exactly what kind of chocolate do you use?
I use almond bark to make chocolate sppons, I melt the almond bark in a double boiler, dip the plastic spoon in the melted chocolwye, place on waxed paper to dry. Whimsical idea for hot chocolate party.
