|Edible Chocolate House|
Starting with the Gingerbread Train:
|Put together Gingerbread Train. Looks easy enough!|
|Comes with a nice tray that the pieces fit down into and are 'cemented' with green icing.|
|Oldest brother and sister hard at 'work'.|
|Train is assembled. Now for the CANDY ... I mean decorations.|
|Inside view - complete with Snowman rider!|
Now for the Make it Yourself Holiday House!
|The kit! Complete with reusable molds!|
|After melting the chocolate and pouring into the molds, refrigerate for about 15 minutes and pop out onto a tray. Looking good!|
|After making two sets of roof, side and front pieces, 'glue' the side walls to the front pieces with more melted chocolate. Refrigerate for another 15 minutes.|
|Next, attach the roof pieces with yet more melted chocolate!|
|Melt the white chocolate to use as decorating 'glue' and icicles. Add gum drops, peppermint swirls and mini jaw breakers.|
|So, which kit won?|
Of course sampling went on upon opening each of the kits. Early on we discovered that the Gingerbread Train was a mess of hard, cardboard-like, nutmeg-overload YUCK! And, the icing wouldn't hold the pieces together. Since it was unanimously decided that no one would be eating this concoction, the remaining pieces were glued together with a GLUE GUN!!!
The Chocolate Holiday House was easy to put together, fun and made of edible c-h-o-c-o-l-a-t-e....
