Anne of Green Gables Chocolates {Free Printable}


"Kindred spirits are not as scarce as I used to think."

Anne of Green Gables is currently one of our oldest daughter's favorite books. Last summer we celebrated her 11th birthday with an Anne of Green Gables themed party!  I made simple party favors with Hershey's Nuggets and a few favorite quotes from the book, similar to the Bible Candy Valentines we made last year. She has been rereading the beautiful hardcover edition we gave her on her birthday and, with the feast of St. Valentine right around the corner, she has been considering making these again as Valentines to give to friends at our annual party. You can download my document here if you'd like to make them as well!



"True Friends are always together in spirit."

Anne of Green Gables Chocolates
{Party Favors or Valentine Cards}

Supplies:
  • 1 bag of Hershey's Nuggets (I purchased the 18 oz "Family Bag" of Milk Chocolate with Toffee & Almond, wrapped in gold)
  • 1-2 sheets of Green Card Stock cut into 2.25" x 1.5" cards
  • 1/8" Ribbon or Yarn cut in 2 1/2" to 3" lengths
  • Scissors and Glue Stick
  • Free Printable

Assemble: 
  1. Glue about 1/2" of the ribbon to the middle of your green paper rectangle. 
  2. Add additional glue to the paper and center the wrapped chocolates on the paper, side by side, over the ribbon. 
  3. Cut out the printed text (from printable or create your own) and fold in half. Cover the back with glue and attach it to the top of the chocolates, sticking the folded center down the middle of the two chocolates, creating the appearance of an open book. 
  4. Take the ribbon and put a little glue in the center of the side facing you. Bring the ribbon over the two pieces of chocolate and place it right down the middle of the open pages. You might need to press the ribbon down gently (with your finger or a paperclip) so it will stick. Let dry completely. 
Optional: Add To/Love labels to the back of each if using for Valentine Cards.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this, and for keeping your downloads free! I would suspect many of your readers can't afford to do a lot of the ideas we see posted here, but a few chocolate candies on paper - that's accessible. Thanks for keeping it free, and thanks for all the hard work you put into your blog. God bless!

  3. Thank you for posting these! I will have to keep these in mind for a future Anne-related party. I am actually in the middle of rereading the complete series, so it is wonderful to be reminded of these quotes. :)

  7. This is a delightful idea Jessica! You are so creative! My adult twin daughters and I have been Anne of Green Gables and Avonlea readers and movie watchers for many years! To live in that era on Prince Edward Island would be magical... I have been most anxious to see the photos from your daughter's Anne of Green Gables themed Birth Day party. I know it must have been just wonderful for her! All of your children's Birth Day parties are so very SPECIAL and UNIQUE created by such a wonderful Mother! May God Bless you with a happy weekend.~Debbie

    1. Sorry for the inconvenience! It's so frustrating that Scribd only seems to work for some people now. I'm not near my desktop computer right now, where my original file is at, but I downloaded it for you and just sent it to your email address. I've slowly been moving documents over to Dropbox... Eventually I hope to get all of them off Scribd!

  11. Hello - the Anne of Green Gables party favors are too cute! I'm helping to host an Anne of Green Gables baby shower and these would be perfect guest gifts. I tried clicking on the link for the favors a few times and although it opens dropbox, it keeps saying there is an error. Would you be able to email me? juliesistrunk@gmail.com

  12. Hi! I am planning an Anne-themed baby shower for a friend, and would love to print the file, but when I open dropbox, it says the file doesn't exist. Would you be able to email it to me, or let me know how to access it, please? These little chocolate favors are adorable! My email address is shailashodean(at)gmail(dot)com. Thank you.
