Introduction: Emergency Chocolate Rations - Simple Holiday Gift

Picture of Emergency Chocolate Rations -  Simple Holiday Gift

Ever want to give a list of people gifts, but you don't have the time or money to give something meaningful to each person on your list? Or maybe you (like me) know of someone who really really likes chocolate, but uses it all at once and can't use it sparingly? 

Here is ONE solution that will get a chuckle out of the giver, and the give-ee, and it takes less than 15 minutes to put together (once you have the candy bars of course)

Check out how easy this is in the next few steps.

Step 1: Buy the Candy

I used ten 12g KitKat bars which I got at the store for just a couple dollars. 

Step 2: Download Template

Download and Print this template:


Step 3: Snip and Glue

Just cut along the lines of the template and add a bit of glue to the top white section of the paper.

Step 4: Wrap Up

Simply secure the new wrapper around the bar, making sure it's nice and snug so it doesn't slip off easily, and hold it for a few seconds to secure it in place.

Step 5: All Done

What next? I plan to slip one cute candy bar each into a few Christmas Crackers which I'll be taking apart meticulously to avoid detection. Let me know if you do anything interesting with yours!
