An excellent gift for guests, these bright-topped decorative jars are a great chocolatey take-away.

End things on a sweet note by sending guests home with a reusable jar filled with chocolate eggs. Attach small plastic toy animals, like roosters or rabbits, to lids with a dab of hot glue and then spray-paint with a fun colour. Place a nest of straw in the bottom of each jar and top with candy.
