Ingredients

2 cups
white chocolate chips or candy melts
1⁄4 cup
Wilton-brand candy melts, red
1⁄4 cup
Wilton-brand candy melts, green
2 teaspoons
shortening (optional)

Instructions

Cover two large cookie sheets with waxed paper.  

Place one cup of chocolate chips or candy melts in heat-proof measuring cup. A smaller, deeper cup gives best results.

Microwave white chocolate chips or candy melts at 50% power for 1 minute. Remove cup and stir. Continue microwaving at 50% power, stirring every 30 seconds, until chocolate is melted and smooth. DO NOT over-heat chocolate.

To thin chocolate, add 1 teaspoon solid shortening per cup of chocolate chips. Stir gently.

Dip plastic spoons in melted chocolate to cover the bowl of the spoon.  

Remove excess chocolate by tapping tip gently against the side of the measuring cup.  

If chocolate thickens, return to the microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power, stir gently.

Repeat with second cup of chocolate chips or candy melts.

Place 1/4 cup of red candy melts inside a plastic food storage bag. Place bag in heat-proof glass measuring cup, and microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power. Use hands to gently mix melts from outside the bag. Continue microwaving until candy melts are completely melted.

Using scissors, make a tiny snip at a corner of the food storage bag. Gently squeeze ribbons of candy melt out of the bag, moving in a diagonal motion over the bowl of each spoon.

Place 1/4 cup of green candy melts inside a plastic food storage bag. Place bag in heat-proof glass measuring cup, and microwave for 30 seconds at 50% power. Use hands to gently mix melts from outside the bag. Continue microwaving until candy melts are completely melted.
