For the chocolate:
Melt chocolate, butter, and, if using, one of the optional add-ins in a small saucepan over low heat.
½ cup shaved dark chocolate, 1 teaspoon butter
For the icing:
In a small bowl, whisk the icing sugar and water. Add the icing to a pastry bag fitted with a tiny tip. You can also use a resealable plastic bag and cut the tip off of one of the corners.
¼ cup icing sugar, 1 teaspoon water
Lay two wooden spoons on a baking tray. (This is to level the spoons.)
Using a teaspoon, pour some chocolate into a spoon then gently tap the spoon on your counter to level the chocolate. Place the spoon on the baking tray, resting the handle on the wooden spoon. Repeat with the remaining spoons. Set aside till chocolate is firm.
Draw on the stitching using the icing so the spoons resemble a football. Let icing harden before serving.
