Make your own dairy free chocolate gifts

If you need to avoid milk protein, have vegans as family and friends or just love creating your own chocolate gifts please enjoy this free illustrated box template. It came about in a year when there were few options available for children and a young nephew I dearly wanted to include in the season's choccy buying!

Fortunately the range of dairy free products has exploded!  So whilst finding suitable gifts is not a problem anymore Ted rabbit still offers the opportunity to personalise your presents.

  Making Ted's chocolate carrots

First source a mould and place it on a baking tray. Then minimise any waste by grating the chocolate finely and spooning a quantity into each of the mould's cavities. Press down firmly and heat in an oven. Wait as the chocolate settles and top up again if necessary.


Once cooled and set, turn out the carrots onto a clean surface and then seal in an airtight bag. Wrap the bag with green or orange tissue paper and place it in Ted's carrot box.
