Valentine’s Hot Chocolate Basket + Stirring Spoons

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…)

  2. That is an adorable idea that I must steal! I'm buying my man a tiller for Valentine's Day and feeling like it's similar to a guy buying his wife a vacuum cleaner for a special occasion. LOL Was looking for something a bit more personal to give as well and BINGO, you just solved that issue. Will make another for my college age daughter who lives in her own apartment and tuck a bit of cash in there.

  7. Imagine the (Dixie) Delight I had when one of my students brought their version of this in for me today!! They found it on pinterest and I was the lucky recipient. I recognized it immediately as I adore your blog. I'm a Yankee by birth, but my mama was So-Southern and my heart and soul are Southern, too. Love your posts! Wishing you and yours a Happy Valentine's Day!

  8. This plan of yours is a plan of action, and that
    means you take action every single day. By using the
    autoresponder, you have been in front of a potential customer for
    five days. I recommend this online marketing formula to beginner's.
