Blogmas Day 16

No Bake Foodie Gift

What is in store for you on Blogmas day 16? Well… I have a simple no bake treat idea that will cost no more than a few pounds and will make teachers, classmates, colleagues, and secret santas very happy.

Foodie gifts look great when presented in cellophane baggies. Here’s a link to the ones I purchased on Amazon for less than £2. Cellophane Baggies.

Hot Chocolate Spoons

This idea is incredibly simple yet effective. Kids especially love melting these into a mug of hot milk.

What you will need:

Spoons: You can use any spoons of your choice.

Chocolate: I like to do milk chocolate for kids. You can go rich and dark for adults.

Baby marshmallows: This is optional. You can use festive sprinkles.

Method:

Melt the chocolate. I do mine in the microwave. Heat on a medium heat for 1 minute. Stir well, and then heat for 20 second intervals. Do not rush this stage or you’ll end up with grainy, clumpy chocolate.

Lay your spoons on a baking tray and fill with your melted chocolate. (See picture above.)

Top with the marshmallows or sprinkles.

Place the tray in the fridge until the chocolate sets.

Once set, remove from the fridge and place a spoon or two in a cellophane baggie and tie with a ribbon. You can also add a gift tag that says ‘stir into hot milk’.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Time restraints don’t have to stop us making treats or getting crafty with the kids this Christmas. Also, if you are on a tight budget, I’m sure your loved ones will appreciate these foodie gifts.
