Chocolate bubble wrap or bubble wrap chocolate, whichever you think is the correct description is so easy to make and super fun for the kids. It’s a mix between crafting and baking, it is simply melting chocolate and putting it on bubble wrap cooling it down, and then they peel the bubble wrap off, and you’re left with chocolate with a lovely bubble wrap effect. Kids enjoy it as a fun craft to do at home. It’s easy, it’s a little bit messy, but it’s fun too. And best of all, you get to eat the lovely chocolate creation after the mess is cleaned up. Normally I’m not a fan of messy crafts, but this one, even I’ll allow!
