Rock Climbing Party - Part 1, Chocolate Pebbles and Boulders

I've posted several times about the upcoming Skylanders party because that is an at-home party and will require a ton of prep work.  We do have another special party coming up before that one, however.  My daughter's 10th birthday rock climbing party is fast approaching, June 1st!  We're holding it at a local rock climbing facility and we're doing our 1st ever joint party with one of her friends.  (Their birthdays are only a few weeks apart and they both wanted to climb, so BLAM-O - joint party!)  It's been fun having another mom to plan with and bounce ideas off of (my husband is NOT interested in party planning.  Like, at all.)

Since the party is now about 6 weeks away, it's time to kick things into gear.  I have some fun ideas for favors which I'll be sharing, but I wanted to post this find because I'm so excited about it.  I was at the grocery store yesterday (Wegmans, which is the best grocery store ever.  It's a fact.) and in the bulk foods section, I found not one but TWO kinds of chocolate rocks.  Score!  I really wanted some for the favor bags, but I am not a fan of buying wholesale candy online - the shipping is ridiculous and the volumes you have to purchase are also ridiculous.  Imagine then my delight when I saw these chocolate pebbles...

... and these chocolate boulders!

THEY LOOK JUST LIKE ROCKS!!!!  I find this amazing.  ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.  Since they are in bulk, I can buy exactly the amount that I need.  I will pop them into little cello bags and voila, the perfect rock treat.


  1. Where did you find these pebbles? Do they ship to Australia?

  2. I found them at the local grocery store. I know they exist online but unfortunately, I don't have a site to which to point you. Good luck!
