Chocolate Peppermint Spoons

I made a batch of these to go in gift baskets and tuck in with a few other little gifts. I've made them several times, so my measurements here are estimated as I just kind of go by feel.

Amy's Chocolate Peppermint Spoons
12 heavy plastic spoons
1/2 or so melting chocolate wafers (estimated amount)
2 drops peppermint extract
1 cup crushed candy canes
Melt chocolate in double boiler, the stir in extract and half the candy canes. Dip each spoon into the mixture, twirl to remove excess, dip again, twirl again, and then lay on waxed paper to dry. Spinkle tops ("bowl" side of spoon) with remaining crushed candy. Cool, when hard remove from waxed paper and wrap in individual cellophane bags.
Use these to stir into hot coffee or hot chocolate for a sweet treat.
