4. Place the filled mold on a baking sheet and tap on a countertop several times to level the surface and eliminate any air bubbles.

5. Transfer the mold to the freezer, and leave them there until firm (about 30 minutes). Gently remove your spoons from the mold and keep them frozen until you’re ready to use them—we dare you to resist!
