Getting a bar of chocolate is a bit boring (tasty, but boring none the less) and as at Christmas we like to do something a little more special, I thought I would share with you an easy way to make something a little more personal that Top Ender and I love making and is every bit as tasty as a bar of chocolate.
Home Made Chocolates
Take a bar of chocolate. It can be white or milk or dark chocolate, just as long as it is something that you like to eat, or the person you are giving the gift to likes to eat! Break the chocolate up and put it into a microwaveable bowl. I like to melt the chocolate in 30 second bursts, but of course you can do it the old fashioned way and melt it over a pan of boiling water.
There is a gift in the Oxfam Unwrapped range that I think goes really well with this additional gift of Home Made Chocolates and as the information on the Oxfam Unwrapped website explains it so much better that I could, here is what they say;
If you think chocolate is the business, then help a would-be cocoa grower to start their own. We’ll give them everything from cocoa seeds to tools, training and marketing advice, even help to establish a cocoa-growers co-operative – to help keep that lovely chocolate coming. Yum!
The code for the gift on the Oxfam Unwrapped site is OU5012LH and at £19 it is something which you should go and buy right now for someone in your life. To make it even easier here is the direct link to the page where you can buy the gift from http://www.oxfam.org.uk/shop/
If you pop over to Who's the Mummy you can find out details of the Simplify your Christmas Carnival and how to download a goat badge or Oxfam unwrapped badge (like mine!) and all the information you need to take part and share your own Simplify Christmas posts too.
