Saturday, November 29, 2008
If building a Gingerbread House always seemed like a daunting task these inexpensive and easy-to-make kits will change your mind.
For just $7.99 Trader Joe's offers a traditional Gingerbread House kit complete with sugar-made people to place at the door. They stock these every year and run out quickly, don't expect to see them on the shelf for long.
New this year is a modern take on the traditional Gingerbread House from Willy Wonka's Candy Factory. This kit features kid favorite candy such as Runts, Nerds, Sweet Tarts and Bottlecaps. $12.99 at your local grocery store
Both kits include gingerbread, vanilla icing mix, and plenty of treats to decorate with.
Suzy Tip: Buy a can of pre-made white frosting to set the house with instead of the frosting mix included.
