Thanksgiving Chocolate-Bar Place Card

Bring a touch of yesteryear to the holiday spread with this stately gobbler. Folded around a chocolate bar and presented at each seat, the wrapper serves as a place card. The confection doubles as a take-home treat, which guests will be thankful for long after the real bird is gone.

  1. Step 1

    Download desired template and print onto heavyweight matte paper. Cut out. 

  2. Step 2

    With a gel-ink or felt-tip pen, write a name in the space. 

  3. Step 3

    Remove wrapper from a 3-by-6-inch chocolate bar (leave foil intact). Wrap clip art around bar, centering image on front. Trim paper to fit if needed. 

  4. Step 4

    Secure clip art with a strip of double-sided tape.

    Just made my was fun and easy!!! Found my foil lined candy bars at Central Market in Austin, Texas.

    some Hershey bars still do have the 2 wrappers. I bought some last week that had to foil and regular wrappers

    This is a wonderful idea, but Hershey's bars don't come with a 2 piece wrapper anymore. Does anyone know of other chocolate bars that have the 2 piece wrapper with the foil in the middle?

    I used this for my Thanksgiving dinner and it was a hit. Our friends and family loved this idea. It was a team effort with me downloading the template and my husband writing our guests' names.

    Click on save, sign in if you haven't already, look to the right and click on Horizontal or Vertical Template. Print or you can save to your computer. Simply beautiful.

    After opening the document, save a copy to your desktop and then open the file from there. I had a similar problem where I could see the image until I moved the scroll bar. After I did this, I was able to see the image.
