Mothering Sunday Bonus Activities!

Thursday 8th March 2018

It's time to celebrate Mothering Sunday! This is celebration of our mothers, step-mothers, grandmothers; any family member or friend who loves, helps and looks after us. We have created a lovely little gift bag that you could make for this person or people - enjoy!


A red version of the lovely tissue paper flower you will be making in your boxes this week. Check inside your box for the full instructions!

Chocolate Bark Gift Bag

The best thing about this treat is how easy and effective it is. These chocolate shards are beautiful and are easy to make your own by using different colours and decorations!

First you're going to want to melt some white chocolate, whether that's in the microwave or in a heatproof bowl over a pan of hot water. The key to the smooth consistency is consistently stirring!

Pour the chocolate on to a baking tray with some baking parchment on. Now is the fun part! Cover the melted chocolate in different kinds of sprinkles, silver balls or chocolate drops. To add some colour to the chocolate bark, pour some drops of food colouring onto the chocolate. Use a spoon or cocktail stick to swirl around the colour. Isn't that nice?!


Now cool the chocolate in the fridge until it sets.

Break the chocolate into pieces and put it in a clear cellophane gift bag. Add a pretty decorated label and you’re done.


If you're looking for a full recipe of the lovely shortbread you made this week, then look no further! The recipe below makes 12-14 shortbreads.


Have a fabulous week, Love the Weekend Box Team.
