This year we finally tried the Trader Joe’s Gingerbread House Kit!
I have seen these kits for years and thought … FUN! but never got around to trying them out. There was always some reason or another holding me back- But not this year…. 2014 was the year.
What makes this story even more odd, is that it is our family tradition to make Gingerbread houses around Thanksgiving time- usually on Thanksgiving day while the Turkey is cooking.
We loved this house- because let’s face it- the roof is huge & is the best part of the decorating! I love crafting the roof- planing out the tiles or design. I think that a great roof is the best part of the house!
This house was a flat kit that we had to “glue” together before we decorated- we usually do this the night before just to make sure that everything “holds” before we get busy adding all the candy. And YES .. we did make a few additions to the candy that came in the kit ….
We did like all the fun candy that came with the house, but must admit to adding a few other candy favs along the way. I mean what would the Holidays be without mini- marshmallows or peppermint rounds, and my personal fav those wonderful Hershey’s Kisses (the mint & white chocolate ones are the BEST! )
Here is our Video showing off the results
