Chocolate will always be a staple gift. Whatever the occasion, chocolate pieces make for excellent (not to mention delectable) souvenirs or gift tokens. In fact a new craze is going around now: chocolography, the concept of printing logos, pictures and such on chocolate — everything of which can be eaten, too.
For people who are not capable of spending much on such special gift items, and for those who only intend to give out a few of them, it will be most advantageous if you’ll simply make your own gift ideas with gold chocolate coins. This way, you can put in a personal touch that will make the gifts even more special and meaningful.
The following are some examples of simple gifts you can make out of chocolate coins:
It is very easy to do these. You can even get your kids to make these with you. Without peeling off the gold foil wrapper of the coins, use a toothpick to punch a hole from the edge of the coin up to 2/3 of its diameter. Give the toothpick a couple of twists to make a narrow, circular tunnel. Then, insert a clear, sharp-tipped plastic straw to create a handle for the chocolate lollipop.
There’ll be no need to individually re-wrap these lollipops since the gold wrapper will be preserved. Place them in attractive containers with colorful tulle papers and bows, and you’re set to give these gifts away.
