While the winter cold sets in and the days are shorter and shorter, Christmas time is approaching fast. This is the time of year when the Christmas markets are full, the streets are decorated and the Christmas spirit is in the air. While everyone is eagerly awaiting Christmas, there is one thing that many of us look forward to the most and that is the fact that this is the time of year that we can eat lots and lots of chocolate. More specifically, during the Christmas holiday season we will consume 40% more chocolate than we do at any other time of the year.
Chocolate Decoration Ideas
Just about everyone loves chocolate. I mean who doesn’t enjoy the deliciousness of chocolates? From chocolate bars to boxes, and from baskets to hampers-chocolate does indeed make for great gifts any time of the year!
1. Chocolate Cones
Who knew a cone could be so fun and versatile? These cones can be filled with fairly endless options including sprinkles, sweets, marshmallows, or even chocolate!
There is never a bad time to get creative with food. Fun desserts that got us entertained when we were kids like ice cream cones that we could twirl around our fingers, creating decorated rings are still quite a nifty favourite for celebrations but also to make things more whimsical at picnics or play dates for our kids’ friends.
Ice cube trays can be steamed over with warm water and frozen into succulent garnishes or chocolate dipped which you can use to try chocolate drizzles and pretty much any other candy additions you may come up with like sprinkles or inside the chocolate bowl, multi-colored marshmallows, crushed graham crackers and candy pieces of your choice like Cadbury chocolates – the only limitations are your imagination!
2. Chocolate Hearts
Chocolate and hearts go hand in hand during the winter months. This recipe is perfect if you’re looking for a sweet treat to celebrate/share with friends, family or someone you love (you get warm and fuzzy thoughts anyway, right?). Using melted chocolate, pour into heart-shaped moulds onto a non-stick surface like parchment paper or silicone mats, decorate with cute little tags and trinkets that bring out the holiday spirit – don’t forget the Christmas tree! Show your love(r) during this special time of year by gifting yourself (and your favourite person(s)) this festive box filled with classic New Year’s treats.
3. Christmas Hot Chocolate
Dive into the depths of winter with Christmas hot chocolate. The joys of true love at Christmastime can only mean one thing, you’re probably not going to want to come home anytime soon! Large chocolate bars filled with marshmallows are when dipped in hot milk, it evades out as flowing marshmallows and fun to every moment of Christmas.
