Lovelyladylibra--may I ask if you could provide a link to the exact bags you purchased OR give the size, description, and store on eBay? I just went on eBay looking for a while and there are a LOT of different cello bags. Some with resealable tops, some with fold tops, some with gussets....goodness.

I looked at your pops (liked the red marble the best!) and those bags should work for my purposes. I will be making about 150 chocolate spoons for Christmas gifts, and it looks like those bags would work very well. Do you think a "spoon" would fit ok and leave room at the bottom for ribbon?

Thanks

Apti--how do you do your chocolate spoons? Do you have any pics posted? These sound like they would be a great Christmas gift along with my oreo cookies & pretzels. Thanks.

ouch...me too..... Ah well, it was still a great deal for $20

lynn780~~I haven't made any spoons yet. I just ordered a whole bunch of stuff from http://www.chocomolds.com/CMMOCHA.html

These molds are different than just using plastic spoons and filling the spoon with chocolate. I purchased one of each of the molds on the page above AND 5 packs of the gold Mocha Stirrer Sticks. The flat stirrer sticks will allow 2 things a spoon can't: molded design, more chocolate. Also, they won't melt or deform like some cheap plastic spoons. (I REALLY wanted the gift boxes, but they are on backorder. These boxes are a reasonable price for the custom made boxes for a hobby baker.)

If I do not include the cost of the molds & mold shipping or my labor time
For 150 spoons:
packaging (cello bag, metallic twist tie): 10-15 cents each
gold stirrer stick: 15-20 cents each
Cost of chocolate/candy melts: (variable) probably 15-30 cents

Total per spoon: 40-65 cents per spoon

(If I get the custom gift boxes, the box+shipping= $2.30 (approx.)
plus 6 spoons at 50 cents per spoon = average of $5.30 per boxed gift)

That's pretty dang inexpensive for custom gifts for a LOT of people! I make gifts for tons of teachers/class parents/convalescent home staff/neighbors/friends/family, etc. Even at 50 cents per person average, it's still gonna be $75 for 150 people. If I did weddings, these would make fabulous favors for the guests.

I kinda went nuts on the ChocoMolds.com site. I'm going to make chocolate houses this year instead of gingerbread houses. I can't wait!!!
Check out their small house molds and accessory molds for the small houses. (I feel just like a little kid waiting for Santa to come!)

uline.com check them out they have every size bag possible. A 2x3 in bag costs $6 for 1000 bags. Delivery is very very fast.

Wow, it just keeps getting better and better! Thanks, guys! I like the fact that uline.com specifies that they're FDA/USDA approved.

Apti, can the chocolate spoons be used for hot chocolate too or just for mocha? It seems like there wouldn't be enough chocolate for hot chocolate but I wanted to know since I wouldn't want to give them to people who don't drink coffee if they couldn't use them. Thanks!

Forget about dipping! I gonna eat mine! They are a small molded chocolate on a stick, just like a lollipop. (Nobody in my family drinks coffee and if they did they wouldn't waste a perfectly good chocolate lolly in it!)
