Like last year, the PCP is giving his teacher a little hot chocolate gift basket for a Valentine’s treat. It’s really easy and affordable to pull together and, let’s face it, who wouldn’t like to get a basket of hot chocolate with all the fixins?!?!
The red spoons, cups, napkins, marshmallows and basket are all from the Dollar Tree. To make the little hot chocolate stirring spoons, melt a handful of chocolate candy melts in the microwave. Spoon the melted chocolate into a zip top bag, snip one end and squirt into the spoons. Use a knife to level, dot with sprinkles and chill until hardened. Since I already had the candy melts, sprinkles and hot chocolate packets, the whole shebang cost me $6 for TWO baskets!
Last year’s basket was a little different, but equally as cheap and cute :-) We have a few spoons left to try ourselves, and I can’t think of a better snack on yet another rainy day! (Other than the chocolate raspberry cake pops at Starbucks, that is. Daddy-O bought them for the littles yesterday and I can’t seem to get the ONE bite the baby deigned to share off my mind…)
