Tie dye candy spoons are an easy DIY to sweeten any food you eat with a spoon.

It's a great item to stick in a kid's lunch box or give to your friends.

In just four easy steps you'll have fun edible spoons.

1. What you'll need

Making candy spoons is super simple -- it's a craft you can do by yourself or with younger kids.

  • Different colored candy melts
  • Silicon spoon mold (We got ours from Pampered Chef.)
  • Microwavable bowls
  • For extra fun choose the colors of candy melts based on the holiday or occasion.

    For Halloween use black and orange candy melts for some spooky fun.

    2. Melt the candy

    Melt each color candy in separate bowls according to the directions on the packaging.

    3. Fill the mold

    Drizzle the melted candy into the silicon spoon mold.

    Fill the mold to the top.

    It's OK to be messy -- you can just clean it up afterwards.

    TIP: If you want to be more precise put the melted candy in a pastry bag.

    4. Remove the spoons

    Wait for the spoons to completely harden and then gently push out of the silicon mold.

    For faster results place the silicon mold in the refrigerator.

    5. Eat your creations

    Use your candy spoons to eat things like yogurt, cereal, ice cream and pudding.
