Happy Christmas and chocolate sleighs !

Hi there crafty friends, just a very last minute post before Christmas! I just made these chocolate sleighs for our grandchildren and  loved them so much I thought I would share them with you all. I think I made some years ago when the grandchildren were very young too.

I can't take all the credit as I first saw the idea for them  made by Jak Heath a few years ago and also she has added an updated one now ... link HERE. Do have a go at making them if you can as they are quite easy to make and you can use any chocolate/sweets which fits the 'sleigh' really.

I used a hot glue gun, red ribbon tied around them and various bars of chocolate etc. ....I had a hard job finding the candy canes this year and no red and white ones either ...shortage of them everywhere. I kept putting off making them as I just couldn't find any of the canes. But I did find these pink and green ones last week and was able to make the sleighs in the end luckily.

I think the 'littlies' will love them too, I added little tags with their names on also ;)
