Ramshackle Gingerbread

This year I resolved to spend as little money as possible on the annual Gingerbread House, simply because I’ve been known to overdo it and have mounds of leftover candy laying around until Easter. (Here is last year’s house. All of those M&Ms wound up on my hips.) So, I selected seven one-dollar bags of non-threatening candy and decided to find other decorating solutions from the pantry (like cereal and Annie’s Chocolate Chip Bunnies). The result is a make-shift gingerbread house that looks… okay. Jeremy and Jackson love it, which is the point, but I know we could do better. Considering I spent $7 on the project, I won’t complain.

Plus, there’s no leftover candy. My waistline thanks me.
