We foolishly bought a large variety bag of Hershey's nuggets a couple weeks ago.
Like, I really need more sugar.
I'm happy to say there are still some in the freezer...meaning...I haven't eaten them all.
I'm even happier to say that I came across this tutorial
and decided to play along with my 5 yo...Sophia.
I know it's terrible to give something as a gift when I don't like it...(the candy, that is)
but I don't feel too bad since we improved them.
And really...other people must like dark chocolate...right?!?
Otherwise, they wouldn't keep making the stuff.
Anyhoo, she and I used stamps and card stock that I had on hand and had a great time cutting them out,
and coloring and decorating after stamping.
We glued our Christmas trees and Santas back to back with a half opened paper clip in between.
Then we wrapped the dark chocolate nuggets with Christmas paper and taped the trees on top.
In the tutorial, a full bodied Santa was used and it was really cute to see it rock back and forth on the nugget.
Ours...not so cute in that respect.
But they really were adorable.
Sophia had the delight and honor of delivering them to friends here in our building.
And, now I can say, I put up a tree.
Even if it was on Christmas Eve.
