Gift idea time! – A hug in a mug bundle

The perfect handmade gift for any chocolate fan! A mini parcel filled with all the ingredients you need to make the best hot chocolate known to man!

First I melted my fav chocolate into a heart shaped ice cube tray, once it started to set, I pushed a disposable wooden teaspoon into each cube and left to harden. (Teaspoons are on eBay for super cheap prices)

Then I filled clear mini cellophane sachets (which I bought from eBay) with lots of sweet treats, some with marshmallows, some with deluxe hot chocolate powder, some with chocolate sprinkles. I sealed each sachet with a handmade sticker by stamping snowflakes onto plain white parcel stickers just to add a Christmassy touch!

Once my heart shaped chocolates (with wedged in teaspoon) had set, I removed them from the ice cube tray and put each one into a clear cellophane bag – and sealed the same way with a sticker.

When you have all the different sachets filled, pack them into a mini bundle, one of each one. I used clear display bags with a gold pattern on and tied with a ribbon.

I then printed out instructions on how to enjoy and decorated the reverse for an additional decorative touch and tied to the ribbon.

Happy Christmas y’all!
