Stained Glass Star Gingerbread House

gingerbreadhouse

I love the stained glass (candy) window added to this gingerbread house. This one has a clean design leaving the corners undecorated as well as the edges of the gingerbread men. The stained glass is made from melting a shiny candy. Melt the candy, pour onto wax paper to let it go flat and press same cookie cutter (cover with Crisco type product) that was used in the gingerbread itself and cut a shape out. You can also lay the gingerbread with the cutout directly onto wax paper and pout the melted candy into the cutout until filled. Make sure this is poured a little thick – otherwise it will be very fragile. This could be a school, church or house.

Candy Trains – Just Assemble

47811_10151556749075818_1470396812_nThese are really great – and they are super easy to assemble.

Needed:

Mini-Snickers Bars, Reece’s Pieces OR M&M Plain, Teddy Grahams and either chocolate icing or 1 cup chocolate chips for melting

What Now:

Place Mini-Snickers out on parchment paper. Break 1/3 off of the bottoms of your Teddies. With a knife poke a hole for Teddy to fit it. With melted chocolate or chocolate icing dip Reece’s Pieces or M&M Plain candies into it and attach giving Teddy a steering wheel and wheels.

This would be great for a child’s party, or a little pick me up for school. Would also make a nice addition to  a festive dinner.
