I’ll admit, other than during finals season, I am not a big coffee drinker. I don’t like the taste of black coffee, but I also don’t like the idea of dumping gallons of cream and sugar into my mug. That’s where these stirring spoons come in.

For when a girl just needs a cup of coffee to get things going, these are a game-changer: they add the perfect amount of flavor and sweetness to your coffee without making it taste like a sugar cube. What’s even better is that you can tailor them to your liking with whichever types of chocolate or toppings you prefer.

Use this recipe as a guide into a totally new world of coffee drinking. If you don’t dig coffee, these stirring spoons go great with other beverages such as tea, hot cocoa or even hot vanilla.
