Hot Chocolate Bombs

So lately Hot chocolate bombs have been going VIRAL! To put it simply, they are a theatrical way of making hot chocolate which is made by placing all the ingredients for a hot chocolate (hot chocolate powder, marshmallows) within in a Chocolate Sphere then pouring warm milk over the top. They make super cute Christmas gifts, are inexpensive and super fun to make and drink. The flavour choices are endless but here are a few to get your imagination going.

Christmas bauble cupcakes

Over the years I've seen so many Christmas Cupcake ideas but these are just so creative! You can either make them just so the top looks like a bauble or bake the cupcakes in silicon dome moulds and make the whole cupcake round which looks really authentic. My favourite decorations are made by melting candy melts and White Chocolate then brushing the mixture into dome moulds, then once set brushing them with edible shimmer powder and your choice of either piped or fondant decoration.

CHRISTMAS TERRARIUMS

Christmas Terraiums are great inexpensive decorations or presents. They're super fun to make and the whole family can get involved. They keep well and can be used as table centre pieces, mantlepiece decorations, or coffee table talking pieces. The process is simple just follow the following steps and you will have a beautiful Christmas Terrarium in no time at all.

Toddler Christmas Crafts Part 1: The Grinch

So my 2.5 year old is completely obsessed with the grinch both the animation and the Jim Carrey version. We've got to the point that he wants to dress up to the grinch and listen to "You're a Mean One, Mr Grinch" by Tyler, The Creator on repeat. But as we all know its not healthy to watch the Grinch on repeat all day, although he might like it so I'm hoping these Grinch crafts I've found online will fill the void.

Healthy Smoothies for Christmas Morning

Knowing what to eat on Christmas morning can be difficult. I find in my house we try not to eat because we know we're going to have a big lunch but that tends to mean we are starving by the time we arrive at the celebrations and pig out on all the appetisers! We also don't want to get into the habit of eating chocolate and other Christmas sweets on Christmas morning just because it's Christmas. So I went on the hunt to find some healthy options which are going to sustain us until lunch but also feel Christmassy.
