We did this simple idea a lot for holidays and weddings at Martha Stewart. Take your favorite (flat) chocolate bar and cover with a beautiful paper or wrapping paper and secure with double stick tape. To personalize, add a simple label with each guests’ name. Hershey bars are an easy choice but I love my friend Jessica’s chocolate company Woodblock Chocolate, chocolates handmade by her and her husband. (see our behind the scenes post visiting their factory)
You can find labels like these at Staples stores and online and search the internet for free clip art to print out if you’d like a turkey icon or even Christmas icons. Etsy.com has many instant candy wrapper downloads for a small cost. And there is no better place to get gorgeous papers than New York Central Art Supply. You no longer have to be in New York City to see and purchase their specialty papers, now you can shop online! But if you are in New York, go to the store at 62 Third Avenue (at 11th Street) and see these papers in person! Just amazing. -Lynn Butler Beling
