After the success of last year’s chocolate nativity scene, I decided to make another earlier this week with my girls.
As I was setting out the lollies and blocks of chocolate to make our creation, Esther pointed out there were animals at the birth of Jesus.
Right she was.
So this year’s chocolate nativity scene includes one lone sheep (a milk bottle cut in half) a shepherd (jelly baby) and a staff (candy cane).
This year we elevated the pitch of the roof and instead of a Cadbury Flake log for Jesus’ manger, we used a banana lolly because Maggie ate all the Flakes and left only one for the sprinkling.
Since we made the chocolate nativity scene, it’s been sitting in the fridge and my girls have asked if they can eat ‘Jesus’ house’ for breakfast.
We’re taking it for a morning tea catch up tomorrow.
Next year, we will look at adding an angel. Or a lobster. Except they are way too little to understand that.
