There are times that chocolate is not a treat, it is a medical emergency.
What better way to satisfy someones craving for chocolate than to give them a stash of "emergency" chocolate bars.
These would make great stocking stuffers or inexpensive gifts for co-workers.
It is a great fast and easy last minute gift to make.
For these I used the 1.5 ounce size chocolate bars (43 gr) that I could buy in bulk at the grocery store.
While I used Hersey's chocolates you can use any brand as long as the size of the chocolate is about 5 inches by 1-3/4 inches and that it is a smooth surface.
Print off as many copies of emergency chocolate.pdf that you will need, there are 2 wrappers on each pdf. Place the pages separately on a table to make sure that the ink from the printer dries. I usually just let them dry for an hour or I will print them in the evening and let them dry over night. (It really depends on how cheap your ink is).
Cut the pdfs in half so you have two wrappers. On a clean surface place the wrapper face down and if you need to tape any excess packaging to the back of the chocolate bar. Center the chocolate bar over the center of the graphics. Cut off the excess paper from the sides, top and bottom of the wrapper.
Carefully wrap the paper around the chocolate bar making sure that you don't smudge the ink. I press in the sides of the paper so it forms to the curve of the chocolate bar.
You can gives these out at other times of the year as well. Make a bunch for a student stressing through exams or to the love lorn at Valentine's.
Emergency chocolates, no home should be without them.
