I couldn't think of a better way to spend a cold, wet Sunday afternoon than making Hanukkah themed gingerbread houses with my friend Sarah. Trying to find blue and white candy this time of year made for an interesting task. I spent the good part of an hour sorting through a wide variety of candy to make sure I left with only the colours we needed. My effort was well worth it because our houses turned out fantastic!
Candy for decorations: blue M&Ms, blue and white shimmery sprinkles, snowflake confetti sprinkles, silver balls, blue jelly beans, two kinds of white gum drops, white gummy trees, chocolate covered blueberries and candy necklaces.
I thought the snow capped trees added a nice touch!
Yes, my gingerbread man is wearing a Kippah!
Here are our finished master pieces! Mine is the house on the left and Sarah's is on the right. Aren't they super cute? Thanks for a fun day Sar! New annual tradition? I think so.
