DIY Candy Cane Hot Chocolate Spoon & Gift Basket Idea

by Jenn

I love this DIY Candy Cane Hot Chocolate Spoon & Gift Basket Idea is perfect for the upcoming holidays. Last year I told myself I was going to spend less money on gifts and more time making gifts for family and friends. Well, the good news is that I finally have one of them finished – which is these DIY Candy Cane Hot Chocolate Spoons and the DIY Holiday Gift Basket I’m sharing with you today. The Candy Cane Spoons were part of the gift basket that I’m putting together for my brother’s family. So I’m happy, I have one down and several more to go but I have some great ideas for other things I’m putting together, lol.

I wanted to have everything planned out earlier, but you know, the year got away from me, and before I knew it, we were fast and furiously heading toward the holiday season. It all came too fast this year like it does every year I guess. One would think I would be used to it by now, but I’m not and don’t know that I ever will, lol.

Like the white chocolate candy spoons, we had a while back, you can make these candy cane spoons with the kids. Just be careful not to let the kids burn themselves because the melted candy canes are HOT!

Okay, so let’s get started before the holiday season is here, and I end up having to save this post for next year! And yes, it’s happened before haha.

DIY Candy Cane Hot Chocolate Spoon

The candy cane spoons are super easy to make. All you’ll need is:

  • Spoon mold, I got mine from Amazon.
  • Candy canes


  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Break up your candy cane. I like to use a spoon and break it up while it is still in the wrapper.
  • Fill the mold with pieces of the candy cane.

DIY Making Candy Cane Spoons

  • Place in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until the candy canes. Keep a close eye on them, you don’t want them to bubble, just melt, or the colors will mix.

  • Remove them from the oven, allow them to cool and remove them from the mold.

For the Holiday Gift Basket, I just added a few candy canes, coffee cups I made for my brother and sister-n-law, a mason jar filled with a special mixture of ingredients so they could have a family night and treat everyone to a glass of hot cocoa and of course a few bottles of water.

Here are a few other holiday-themed posts we think you might enjoy.
