DIY stocking fillers.

I can't really take credit for this idea, cos I stole it from Gemma's blog - here. I saw Gemma had made some home made chocolates for stocking fillers so I wanted to give it a go myself! They are such a fab idea, to just 'finish off' a present, plus they are hand made, and everyone will appreciate the time and thought put into them. Although it doesn't take much of either.

I picked up these chocolate silicone moulds for 99p each in B&M, although you can use any silicone mould. I was thinking next time I might use a cake case and get a larger, flatter chocolate and experiment a bit! The cake glitter is from Harvey Nichols although I'm sure you could pick it up in a cake decorating shop or hobby craft maybe. I also just grabbed some 30p bars of chocolate for the sake of this experiment, I will be using something a little nicer for gifts, although this did do the job.

As you can see, I sprinkled my hundreds and thousands, and edible glitter into the moulds and filled them with my melted chocolate. I cheated and used the microwave carefully to melt the choc, cos it takes ageeessss over a pot of boiling water.

 Here are the results - pretty cute. I love that this literally takes about half an hour at the most, I think I have a super sonic fridge.. They look so cute, although teddies would be my first choice they kinda look like butterflies now. 

I think these are the perfect extra gift, if you have a few pounds left for a budget. These literally cost pennies to make, and you get so many from one or two moulds. As Gemma suggested on her post, they would look cute wrapped in cellophane and tied with a Christmas bow. Perfect.
