Now....Being on a budget gives you the opportunity to be creative with gifts. This year, for some of my gifts to neighbors, Mike's co-workers and friends, I wanted to make something homemade and yummy.
I started with Mercken chocolate. I buy it at speciality candy and cake stores. I melt it down to dipping consistency.When it was melted, I poured it into a drinking glass. I know what you are thinking...that is a strong pregnancy craving....melted chocolate straight out of the glass...
Then I took some of these.
And some of these oh so good toppings (I chopped the Reese's cups up).
I put them in cellophane bags, tied with a Christmas ribbon. I found some small ornaments at Hobby Lobby and added one for that special touch. They were so easy to make and budget friendly!
