Hug in A Mug and Lovebug Treat Bags

Yesterday was a weird Saturday, nothing came out as I planned and my head felt like it was full of cotton wool. I fiddle farted around with these ideas for ages, nothing looked right, colours didn't match, embellishments looked pants – perhaps I should have a “what’s in my bin Sunday” because mine is full!

Anyway, this is what I came up with, using sachets of hot chocolate, mini marshmallows and chocolate “Love Tokens” I got from Home Bargains  (39p) – the name “Hug in A Mug” came from my mate Lisa.

I am thinking, I might try the same idea for Easter - "Bunny Brew" (not really sure about the name yet) - at the moment I am looking for chocolate Easter lollies to use as stirrers.

The second idea uses caramel filled chocolate ladybirds I got from Tesco (£1.04 for 13) the other day.

It’s an idea I’ve used lots of times here before, same old, same old, just a different sweetie and occasion,  using Nestablities Label dies to make the bag toppers.

WHAT’S IN THE SHOPS …………………………………….

Asda Chocolate Hearts
My sister found these for me is Asda – filled with soft chocolate - £1.00 for about 10 – not sure what to do with them yet ……
