I finally completed my Gingerbread House for this Christmas and I think it might be a little larger than normal.
I decided to change the roof finish this year and use chocolate tiles. I bought a pack of after dinner mints from Aldi and found that I was 1 chocolate tile short to complete the task. Fortunately I had bought another pack which were orange, and decided to have one side of the roof in mint and the other in orange. This way I was able to cover the complete roof. I also came across these chocolate twisted licorice that I thought would go well on top of the roof.
I try to decorate my house when hubby is no where to be found as he generally wants to try all the lollies. Fortunately he was out for the day and I had to stop myself from covering all the gingerbread with lollies.
I found these mini reindeer from Maltesers Merryteaser and decided to put them on the board next to the house this year just for a little difference.
As always I used the original recipe for gingerbread and made a separate house the same size for my grandson to decorate before Christmas.
I also made two smaller ones for decorating by my sons partners children who also get pleasure out of this lovely Christmas activity.
I hope you have fun decorating your Gingerbread Houses.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A SAFE AND HAPPY NEW YEAR
