Turn Mini Chocolate Santas into St. Nicholas!

These little fellows make nice favors or a place card decoration. They are a little fiddly, not really suited for a children's craft.

    • Riegelein Minis, 1 3/16 inches tall
    • Russel Stover Solid Milk Chocolate Santas, 2 inches tall, package of 16
    • Storz Solid Milk Chocolate, 2 1/4 inches tall, maybe 10 in package
  • Red metallic foil cardstock or other desired paper
  • German Style Wire, gold color, round 20 gauge (available in craft stores)
  • Mini glue dots


  • Scissors
  • Small round pencil or other small objects to form crozier top


  • Measure width of Santa heads; cut miters free hand;
  • Cut gold wire into about 3-inch lengths, bend crozier top around pencil, trim as needed;
  • Put a blue dot on chocolate Santal's forehead to hold miter; another on hand for crozier.

That's all there is to it!
