Peppermint Spoons

I have these little spoon molds I've had forever.  I don't really remember where or when I got them, but when I was cleaning out the pantry last fall they were found.  I don't know why I bought them, but I decided I would figure out a way to use them.  So off to Pinterest I went.

I found a fun idea for hot chocolate sticks, and decided to make those this winter, and what would be more fun than a stick but a peppermint spoon.  Then, as you stir the hot chocolate into the warm milk, you also get a little peppermint kick from the spoon.  I love peppermint hot chocolate.

I'll find some other uses for this spoon mold, now that I remember I have them.

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Fill spoon mold with crushed candies.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove molds from oven, using a knife or flat edge of a small offset spatula, push the candy into the molds completely.  Refill molds where candy has melted and does not fill the mold to the top.  Heat for 5-8 more minutes, until candy is completely melted.  Again, push candy that has melted outside the molds into the correct spaces and push down the candy to compact it in the mold.  Let cool completely.
Carefully remove spoons from molds.  Store in a cool, dry place.
