Christmas time is chocolate factory time. Turn the kitchen into a sweets making factory and create delicious chocolate candies for family and friends.

Kids-Activities-BLogger-HeaderThe little chocolate nuggets are easy to make. Ingredients needed will vary depending on the desired flavors of chocolate and decorations. The first step is to choose the right chocolate, put it into a metal bowl, that has been placed in a hot water bath, and stir the chocolate until its melted.

The second step is either to spoon the melted chocolate onto parchment paper or to spoon it into silicone forms.

Finally, let the kids decorate the melted chocolate by adding toppings such as mini marshmallows, chopped nuts, raisins, cranberries, candied peel, sugar sprinkles, or candied cherries. The topping list is endless. Check out the complete instructions and ingredient list on Kids Activities Blog.
