Sometimes, dessert happens on a spoon. It is usually unplanned: The spoon makes its way from silverware drawer to hand, diving deep into jars of peanut butter, scraping the bottom of plastic marshmallow Fluff containers or poetically twirling into tubs of Nutella.

Desserts that come on a spoon are rarely inventive, but they are almost always reliable and right. While there's no replacing its classic and instant properties, there are some ways to gussy up the timeless treat.

The collection of desserts on spoons below may take a little more effort to prepare, but they're guaranteed to impress both tastebuds and guests. All of them are adorable (spoons, aw!) and tasty, and some of the spoons themselves are edible. So not only can you lick the spoon, you can eat it, dip it in hot chocolate or soak it in a coffee drink. Enjoy these chocolatey, peanut buttery, sprinkly spoons:
