All the items come in separate plastic containers.
The card has a message from Gramma Terry! This month’s box is all about Holiday Treats.
At the back is a list of all the items from the box and the items you need from home.
Every month, 3 projects are included in the box. This month, we are going to do Hot Chocolate Buddies, Crispy Peppermint Bites, and Winter Cookies. Each of the cards has step by step instructions with a few images.
Flip the recipe cards and you’ll find a list of the ingredients at the back.
Everything in our December 2019 box!
First Project: Hot Chocolate Buddies. For this project, we used red melting chocolate, marshmallows, sprinkles, and candy canes. From home, we also used paper plates, spoon, and a microwave-safe bowl.
As always, we had to melt some chocolate in the microwave before everything else. When it was done, we placed the straight tip of the candy cane into the melted chocolate, then attached it to the marshmallow. The candy cane now serves as the handle, and we used it to lift the marshmallow and dip the other end to the melted chocolate. The last step is to dip the marshmallow on the sprinkles!
Look at how pretty these all turned out!
Second Project: Crispy Peppermint Bites. We’re onto the second project, where we used crushed peppermint, pretzels, and chocolate balls.
We used the remaining melted chocolate for this project by mixing it with half of the crushed peppermint.
The next step is to spread the chocolate on top of the pretzels, and then put one chocolate ball on each pretzel. The remaining crushed peppermint should also be sprinkled on top!
How colorful! These lovely little gems are also sweet and crunchy, so we totally enjoyed them!
Third Project: Holiday Cookies. We’re on to our favorite part, decorating the cookies! For this project, we received several holiday-inspired cookies, and frostings and sugar crystals in 3 different colors.
My kids were so excited and they grabbed their favorite cookie shape right away. My daughter started with the white frosting for the outline of her Christmas ball-shaped cookie.
My younger son chose the green frosting for this cookie!
Here’s my older son who grabbed the red frosting!
This is so much fun! Kids can be creative as much as they want!
Here, we can see the Christmas tree-shaped cookie! It’s looking great!
I’m really loving how detailed and precise my daughter is with her design!
Hooray for the holiday cookies! This one is almost done!
As for my younger son, his designs are still a bit abstract but he’s having so much fun and that’s what really matters!
My older son’s minimalist designs are done as well!
Here are all the finished cookies!
Doing all these projects made a fun bonding time for the whole family, and once we’re done, we also had delicious and sweet holiday munchies to try!
Gramma In A Box is an enjoyable subscription for kids and families who are into crafting or simply looking for a fun activity. It brings out creativity in kids, especially with the cookie decorating projects. It also teaches them how to follow instructions well. We’re so happy with the projects this month because they helped make our holidays a more memorable one. We also munched on the treats afterwards and they’re so good! All in all, it’s a wonderful box and we’re looking forward to future projects!
