A Rich Chocolate Surprie

Graduations, birthdays, weddings, Christmas, really any occasion you can give money as the gift. We all know there are different times when we actually want to give money as a gift. Does anyone else just giving someone a card with some money on the inside? I seriously hate doing that because it just seems so boring, and like there was no thought or effort put into it!

Chocolate moneyFor those time when I do want to give someone money, I like to do it in a fun way. My favorite is to put the money in a chocolate box like this one. Either save a box from a previous buy or just go any buy a cheep box of chocolates…. or buy the ones you like so you can eat them all! You could also use an existing box you have and just use, mini cup cake tins.

If you wrap it, when they open it, they will probably be less than exciting about the box of chocolates you just gave them. Either have them open it right away, or let the joke go on for as long as the wait to open the chocolates! Who knows it might be a while until they realize they have a bunch of money!
