  • The next step is to wrap your chocolate bar using a similar technique to wrapping a present. Place a sheet of text-weight paper underneath the chocolate bar. Place a piece of tape on top of the center of the text paper and chocolate bar. On the other side, if you have excess paper, cut the paper off so that you can wrap it and fully cover the chocolate bar. Add a piece of tape to seal it closed.

  • If your ends of the paper are too long, trim them, but be mindful not to go too short. You want enough on the ends so that you can wrap it all the way to the back of the chocolate bar.  With your chocolate bar still facing down, fold the ends in to make two triangles. Flip the bottom of the end over on top of itself and seal with tape. Do this on both sides. Your chocolate bar is now wrapped.
