    Ive made these before for my hubby and used them myself in hot tea (white choc for me)
    I was wondering if other people really use these ? I am NOT a coffee drinker so I have no idea

      I don’t know about coffee drinkers using them but they are fun to put with a mug, some hot chocolate mix and marshmallows or to use when you serve hot chocolate at a Christmas party or through out the holidays for special occasions. I think they would be great to tuck in with a giant mug, hot chocolate, marshmallow and a bag of a teens favorite cookies for a gift. Teen boys are sometimes hard to buy for so this gift would perfect for them. Anything to eat they love. Big boys would like them too.

        chocolate an coffee go great.
        actually hot chocolate laced with 1/4 cup of coffee got my son through his long shifts at McDonalds where he worked to help with university.
        He hates coffee but needed the cafiene to keep him awake during midnight and early morning shifts.
        just make sure the recipient isn’t diabetic. they know they shouldn’t but putting that temptation in front of them at the season of overindulgence is just downright cruel.

      Another thing too if you have melted chocolate for dipping your spoons you can take some cookies (store bought or homemade) and holding them in the middle dip one end of the cookie in chocolate and then the other end leaving the center free of chocolate. Of course you can then dip in the same things (sprinkles etc) you are dipping the spoons in and add them to your gift basket or on a platter next to your drinks.

    here is a snack mix for gifting or eating all by yourself.
    Curried Corn Snacks.

    1/4 cup butter or margarine
    1/2 to 1 tsp curry powder
    1/4 tsp onion salt
    1/8 tsp ground ginger. the dry stuff not fresh
    2 cups bite size shredded corn squares
    2 cups puffed corn cereal.
    In a large skillet melt butter. Blend in
    curry powder onion salt and ginger
    Add corn squares and puffed cereal, toss
    to coat.
    Heat and stir 15 min. over low heat.

    I think you could mix and match the cereal and make your own specialty.
