Chocolate Gift Box

We enjoy creating food gift baskets for friends and relatives. This chocolate-themed gift box cost us about $32 to make.

First, we lined the base of a cardboard gift box with clear cellophane and crumpled gold tissue paper. This elevates the items added to the box.

We then filled the box with the following items:
A chocolate brown teddy bear
A block of chocolate truffle chocolate
Ribbon-tied cellophane bags containing peanut clusters and almond chocolate
A peanut slab (chocolate and peanuts)
Bars of milk and white chocolate
A triple chocolate cookie
A couple of single foil-wrapped chocolates

Finally, we wrapped a brown organza ribbon around the box and finished with a bow.

We purchased the gift box and ribbon from a local florist. The bear and some of the chocolates were from a department store. The remaining chocolates were purchased from a chocolate shop and the cookie was bought at a deli.

This Choc Gift Box looks fantastic - but a thought is to substitute the teddy (gorgeous though he is) is with a nice bottle of champagne!!!
