Last year, my sister Nan sent me a jar of what looked like gravel. Bill and I eyed the jar of rocks trying to figure out why my sis would send me a jar of rocks.
Finally, I picked up several nuggets of "rock" and smelled them.
"Chocolate" is what my nose told my brain. Trusting my sense of smell, I popped the "rocks" into my mouth and let them sit in my mouth for a short while. Yep, my nose was right and what my sis had sent me was a jar of candy coated, chocolate rocks.
This year, I found a great deal on one pound bags of gluten free, Choco Rocks and decided to make You Rock! Christmas treat bags for the elementary students that I work with. Personally, I think this is a very cute way to send a positive message to students. Candy slogans appeal to the kid in me, too.
Note: I used 1/3 cup of Choco Rocks for each treat bag and a one pound bag will fill about 7 snack size, treat bags.
To make your own treat bags you will need the following materials:
- snack size, zip top bags
- 3x5 index cards
- Christmas gift labels
- Choco Rocks
- red and green permanent markers
- Fill out the 3x5 index cards.
- Add a square gift label and bow to each card.
- Put 1/3 cup of Choco Rocks into each gift bag and zip closed.
- Staple each decorated index card to the top of each zip bag.
