chocolate orange as a chocolate apple

I made this for my daughter’s teacher at the end of the school year, but you could use it at the beginning of the school year or for Teacher appreciation week, or even for your kids to get them excited about school- whatever you want! And your kids can totally help you with this little project- no matter how young they are!

Here’s what you’ll need:

- A Chocolate Orange
- Red Tissue Paper
- Cellophane Wrap
- Green Ribbon
- Green Felt or Paper

Start by getting rid of the box your orange came in. Put your orange in the middle of the tissue paper (we’re going to disguise it as an apple since chocolate oranges are yummy, but apples are teacher-y)

Next, gather the tissue paper up, around the orange (as shown below).

Keep the tissue paper in place by tying a ribbon around like so:

Then, we’ll finish it off with some cellophane (just like the tissue paper).

Get that ribbon out again, tie a knot, but before you finish it with a bow or some curls, cut a leaf out of paper or felt & make a little hole to thread it onto the ribbon:

I finished mine off by curling the ribbon & voila!

It’s pretty easy to make, you can get your kids to help, and it’s a very useful little gift for the teacher- don’t you think? How could you possibly go wrong with chocolate?!

    We were JUST talking about these oranges last weekend! They are so delicious and adult-tasting. I will have to remember this when my son is in school!

      You can find them at pretty much any grocery store, Walgreens, Target, etc. They are everywhere and come in SO many flavors now. (lime, hazelnut, orange, raspberry, coconut, dark chocolate, milk chocolate)
