Children’s Christmas Craft: Hanging Chocolate Baubles

Children love hanging chocolate decorations on the tree and enjoy taking them off and eating them even more.  These are so easy to make and a lovely Christmas activity for the whole family to do together.

Chocolate Baubles On The Tree

Homemade Chocolate Baubles On The Christmas Tree

Ingredients

(makes 20)

100 g bar of white chocolate

100g bar of milk chocolate

A selection of cake decorating toppings such as sprinkles, hundreds and thousands, silver balls etc.

Thread or ribbon for hanging

Greaseproof paper

(We used Lidl’s cheap 35p bars and they worked really well  and taste so much nicer than cooking chocolate and actually cheaper too!)

(Dark chocolate ones look lovely too but we didn’t choose to make any as we prefer a sweeter taste.)

Instructions

  1. Cut your thread into twenty 20cm lengths.
  2. Fold each thread in half and knot the two ends together to form a loop.Cut the thread into 20cm lengths and tie the ends together
  3. Lay the thread loops in rows onto the greaseproof paper about 5cm apart.Place knotted threads in rows 5cm apart
  4. Break your chocolate up and put each type into its own bowl.
  5. Melt your chocolate over a pan of hot water or in the microwave. I just blasted mine for 1 1/2 minutes on full power.
  6. Put a teaspoon of chocolate onto the knot of each thread.
  7. Have fun going crazy with the decorations.
  8. Leave to set and hang them on the tree.

Decorate Your Baubles

This activity offers all the fun of the dreaded glitter Christmas crafts without the trail of glitter everywhere for weeks afterwards. And of course you get to eat them too, a win, win situation in my book.

 Wrapped up they also make really pretty Christmas goodie bags ideal for school Christmas bazaars and parties.

    • Thanks Sally I’m glad you like them. I like them because they’re soooo easy! We also experimented afterwards with putting them on lolly sticks rather than string and that worked really well too. They support bigger amounts of chocolate which is always a good thing in my book! Guess what my kiddies are giving their friends for Christmas!
