Ingredients :
  • 250 gms White cooking chocolate

I have used here Nutella, peanut butter, sticky toffee sauce and basic chocolate ganache for filling.
You can use other fillings too

For Nutella ganache:
  • 1/2 cup Nutella 
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips/ chopped cooking chocolate
  • 1/2 cup cream 
  • Few chopped cashews (optional)
Directions:
  • In a heavy bottomed pan add cream until bubbles start to form, switch off the flame, next add Nutella and chocolate chips and stir gently till completely incorporated, add chopped cashews and stir till you get nice smooth and shiny ganache. 
  • Refrigerate for 15 mins before you use it.
  • Meanwhile melt white chocolate in a double boiler or in a microwave.
  • Now pipe Nutella ganache in the centre of the disposable spoon, refrigerate for 5-7 minutes. 
  • Coat with melted chocolate, decorate it with confetti and allow it to set in fridge for 5-7 mins. 
For basic chocolate ganache: Use the same directions as written above, only skip Nutella and double the quantity of chocolate


For peanut butter filling:
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter
  • 1/2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp honey 
  • 2 tbsp confectioners sugar.

  • Heat everything together on a low flame for 2-3 mins. Allow it to cool before using. 
  • Rest of the procedure is same as mentioned for Nutella ganache 
For sticky toffee sauce :
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbsp water 
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 3 tbsp butter unsalted 
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
Directions:

  • In a heavy bottomed pan combine sugar and water, cook on medium heat till the mixture comes to a boil, continue to cook for 7-10 minutes till you get a dark Amber colour. 
  • Tilt your pan occasionally to get even colour. 
  • Switch off the flame, add in cream, butter, salt and vanilla extract, whisk together everything with a wired whisk. 
  • Allow it to cool completely before using. 
  • Place the caramel sauce in the centre of the spoon and dip it in a bowl filled with melted chocolate, and keep it in refrigerator for 5-7 minutes, decorate it with sugar sprinkles.
