Dove Chocolate Discoveries Meets Stampin' Up!

Good morning everyone! I hope you had a super fantastic weekend! We got a lot accomplished Christmas wise...gifts are wrapped, stockings are stuffed (but they aren't out yet...don't worry!)...are you getting the idea my boys are older? Plus, we don't "do" Santa at our house. We do a fun scavenger hunt for their "big" gift instead...which I need to plan out today.

I will also need to be making another one of the little gifts you see here today. I gave one of these to each of Kyler's teachers as well as to the support staff at the school (small school). I will be making another of these for the lovely young lady that will be attending the nursery at my church on Christmas Eve as our paid child care worker isn't available that evening. I just think if she is nice enough to do that for me then she deserves some chocolate in a cute bag! I used a couple of the ornament stamps from Delightful Decorations for this bag (glassine bag...you can find them lots of places) and inside I placed a chocolate covered pretzel and a chocolate covered graham cracker both from Dove Chocolate Discoveries. To the bag I make today though I think I will add some milk and dark chocolate coins as well. I just used a lovely length of ribbon around the pretzel and called it good. It's a fun little presentation I think.

So, with that I'm off to stamp my bag so I can have one thing checked off my list early this morning!

OH, I forgot to tell you...I got my chocolate tempering unit from Dove Chocolate Discoveries the other day and I'm SO excited to make some chocolate lollipops. I will definitely show them to you when I'm done!

Okay, now...have a wonderful day!

What a great idea! I was just thinking how I might give away maple syrup in bags like that...that stuff is liquid gold in these parts!
