Chocolate Gingerbread Houses & The Cabinet

sweet 3 (2)

Last minute gifts ~ can still be thoughtful and heartfelt….and take just a few minutes to create and wrap….so when the doorbell rings and Aunt Lettie brings along her bingo friend Ethel Mae to see your Christmas tree, you will be prepared!

I found the cutest silicone mold for gingerbread houses at Michael’s Crafts and just knew it would be perfect to create Chocolate Gifts using Wilbur Chocolate from Lititz, PA.

Simply melt the chocolate wafers, pour into the gingerbread mold, refrigerated until firm and pop out of the mold….quick and simple.

Using what I had on hand….I inverted a cupcake paper so the design was on the top side, placed the gingerbread house in the center and sprinkled with jimmies and coconut.   Christmas plaid cupcake papers in red or green would look pretty too.  Maybe even a dusting of powdered sugar ~  Wrap it up in a cellophane bag, tie up with ribbon and you have a quick thoughtful gift!

This would be a fun party favor, centerpiece or place setting for your Holiday table too.

Tiny cakes would be pretty from this mold too…..these silicone molds are the bestest….  Oven, Refrigerator and Dishwasher safe.

So last minute, doesn’t need to look like last minute….

While at Luckett’s Vintage Spring Fair this past summer I stumbled upon this store display cabinet and just couldn’t wait to use it.  It happened to be the perfect color for our home so no painting needed….just needed a good scrubbing. although I might still paint it to clean it up a bit….hoping not to loose the charm.

Thank you Tracy for helping tote my heavy ironstone plates while I carried the cabinet 2 miles to the car…..with very little complaining, lol !

So many possibilities….for now a pretty ironstone display cabinet with little chocolate gingerbread houses of course…..
