A MUM has been praised for the novice way she's used up left over chocolates from Easter and Christmas – while providing her kids' with an epic 'film night treat box'.
The collection of sweets included Kit Kat, Malteaser bunnies and Maoam sweets, among others, with berries and biscuits scattered throughout.
Think of it as a lucky dip with sweets, if you will, or a grazing board with sweet treats designed for those who want a small amount of everything (or a lot, we won't judge).
Sweets aside, though, the display in itself was mighty impressive with the clever mum strategically placing each and every item for visual effect – or at least it seemed that way.
The box displays a colourful contrast between the individual chocolate pieces and the juicy red strawberries, and that of the succulent blueberries and golden tones of various baked goods.
So even if you aren't a fan of sugary treats, or at least in this quantity, the presentation alone will make you drool.

The mum shared the snap of her snack box to the Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK Facebook group where it was met with both praise and confusion.
Many parents complimented the mum on her efforts to use up the left over treats during lockdown, while others were simply stunned there were leftover treats at all.
But the mum insisted her kids aren't massive chocolate eaters, so the amount of sweets had built up over time.
She later added that they only have a treat snack and a pudding once a day, and said "my kids would rather have an ice cream or pringles if given a choice."
In her post she wrote: "Used up all the leftover chocolate/snacks from Christmas and Easter to make a family film night treat box" – and what a movie treat indeed.
One person wrote: "There's never any left overs in our house but great idea"
"Looks amazing. Well done," said another,"People would buy these haha!"
Aside from the complimentary comments, many parents raised the question, "what is leftover chocolate?" with most admitting such a thing would never exist in their own household.
One person joked: "Is this really just chocolate and sweets you'd lost, not leftovers? That's the only possibility in my house."
And shocked, another person said: "My goodness! You must have had some self control to have had chocolate left over from Christmas and Easter.I envy you."
With organised movie night a popular and easy choice for many Brits throughout lockdown, this snack box ought to get a lot of tongues wagging.
