I found this craft in one of my magazines (Martha Stewart Living) and I just LOVED it! Vi and I made a few, and they were so much fun (and super easy!!)
Simply rewrap store-bought chocolate bars to make these cheerful little confections. Put your littlest elves to work making the fingerprint-stamped faces.
Tools and Materials

- Ivory, white, and orange text-weight paper

- Glue stick
- Black, pink, and red ink pads
- Scalloped paper coasters
Santa and Snowmen Bars How-To
1. For Santa: Wrap bar in ivory paper, taping seams. Wrap lower third in vellum; tape. For hat, wrap top 1/2 inch of bar in a 2 1/2-inch-wide strip of vellum; tape, fold sides inward to create a point, and secure with more tape. Glue white pom-pom to point. Press pinky onto black ink, and stamp eyes. Press index finger onto red ink, and stamp nose. Press thumb onto pink ink, and stamp cheeks. Cut a wide triangle from double layer of coasters for beard; trim pointed ends to round them and glue layers together, under nose. For mouth, glue a sliver of red vellum onto beard.
2. For snowman: Wrap bar in white paper, taping seams. Dip pinky in black ink, and stamp eyes and mouth. Glue on small triangle of orange paper for nose. For scarf, wrap yarn around bar twice; knot, and trim to desired length.
***NOTE: We did some of the snowmen with the orange paper noses, but we also drew some on with an orange marker – which worked just as well
