Santa sleighs

Santa's Little Helper has had a very busy December so Christmas baking was scaled back this year. Still, she couldn't resist these cute Christmas table settings that are easy to make and lots of fun.

All it takes to assemble these sleighs is a roll of sellotape, coloured ribbons and a hot glue gun. They're the gift that keeps on giving as you munch your way through what's left of the Christmas season.

Any selection of flat-packed chocolate or lollies will work, as long as they're a similar width and of descending lengths. I used large Whittakers slabs (peanut and milk chocolate), mini Kit-Kats, Milky Bars, Whittakers mini slabs and topped with a mini Moro bar. Just stick each together with double-sided tape or sellotape, then use a hot glue gun to attach the candy cane sleighs underneath. Secure with a ribbon and tie a bow at the top.

The wooden reindeer were swiped left over from a Christmas party we'd been to earlier this month. I'm told they were ordered from overseas, but the sleighs would work just as well without Rudolph's assistance.

Meri Kirihimete!
