An easy way to recycle a Christmas decoration!

So I was reading this post from Skip to My Lou, one of my fave blogs....where she shared how to use the plastic insert inside your Advent calendar to make cute gift tags.  Well, that got my gears to spinning, and I am saving ours to make more adorable Christmas chocolates!!   You can use melted chocolate chips, melt some squares of chocolate bark, or candy melts from Michael's.  Just melt in the microwave, pour into the plastic molds, refrigerate for a few minutes, then pop those cuties right out!!

I am baking/making Christmas treats today, and thought of a really cute way to use these.  Katie decided she hates the chocolates in our advent calendars so I took the insert out of hers, and filled the cavities with melted white chocolate.  I made some chocolate covered oreos, then topped them with the white chocolates from the advent calendar! What do you think? I love how they turned out!
