  1. Cute and easy! The kids loved helping me make them.
  2. Soooooooo super cute! These are going to be the perfect touch to my Christmas baskets. The assembly was so easy and actually very relaxing. Thank you so much for posting.
  3. I made these for our Christmas get-together. All the kids loved them -- it was 3 treats in 1 -- candy bar, candy cane and gummy bears. It was hard to keep the kids from eating all of them right away. Several people commented on how cute and unique they were, and I gave a copy of this recipe to them. Thanks for such a fun holiday treat!
  4. We made this recipe as a craft for fun in Sunday School. The kids really enjoyed it. Some of them used the melted chocolate chips for the glue and some used some leftover white frosting a teacher brought from a gingerbread kit she had used the day before. Both worked fine. We could not find any string licorice to use so we did without. To set them up faster, just pop it in the freezer for about 5 minutes.
  5. Thanks for this fun recipe! I just used icing to assemble the sleighs, which was easier for my 5 year old DD than dealing with melted chocolate; that worked fine for us. We used mini Hershey's chocolate bars rather than Nestle. I think Andes mints would work nicely too. Thanks again!


<p>I'm the mother of 2 (boy and a girl), currently 3 grandchildren (all girls), 1 Chihuahua (Bebe` Chico), and at last count 8-yard cats. Too many of my city friends believe I live a pretty boring life in the country. But country life is perfect for &nbsp;me. For fun I travel around the state visiting country fairs and craft shows. I own more gardening and craft books than cook books, that's what drew me to recipezaar. My passions are cooking, gardening, scrapbooking, sewing and spending time with my family.</p> <p>My biggest problem right now is finding time to spend on this wonderful site. Last summer I did start back up canning and I even purchased a pressure canner so now I'm canning a little more than just jams and jellies.<br /> <br />I'm so glad to see so many people are enjoying my Thanksgiving Turkey Recipe, and it pleases me to know you are receiving great compliments on the juicy bird! <br /> <br />Thank you all for your wonderful comments, Lots of Love.. ~GMaw~</p>
