Queen of all things domestic Mrs Hinch has shared how to make Hot Chocolate Tubes with her followers - and they're the perfect handmade Christmas gift idea.

The idea is to fill a test tube with all the ingredients needed for a luscious hot choccie (think marshmallows, cocoa powder and chocolate chips) and package it up along with a bamboo spoon and candy cane for the ultimate festive hot drink package. Genius!

Watch Mrs Hinch's full how-to here:

The cleaning influencer explained that she got the idea for her hot chocolate bundles from Pinterest, and that all the components can be purchased from eBay, Home Bargains or the local supermarket.

Narrating her how-to guide, Mrs Hinch said: "So, I've decided to make by hot chocolate tubes this evening guys, I thought they'd be quite cute.

"I'm going to wing it and see how they come out! You can't beat a homemade gift for Christmas."

Fancy making ones of your own? Here's how...
