I've been doing a few Christmas gift try outs.
This one is so very easy .
All I did was melt some really nice chocolate in the microwave.
Then I dipped in some beautiful old teaspoons I found at Vinnies.
Pop them onto some baking paper to set in the fridge and
when they are nice and firm wrap some cellophane around them.
Decorate with a pretty piece of festive ribbon .
I thought the dipped spoons would go really well with
some Christmassy cups with marshmallows.
They would also be good with homemade bickies or special coffee.
The chocolate spoons can be swirled through hot milk or coffee
and then your friend gets to keep the spoon and the cup .
The whole thing only costs a few dollars so you could
make a few for teachers , neighbours or
for the unexpected Christmas guest .
Or your kids could just pinch them and suck the chocolate
off like my kids are sure to do !
What do you think ?
Do you have any cheap and cheerful Christmas ideas ?
