I am going to cut right to the chase- my first attempt at making a gingerbread house was a massive failure. I elbowed fellow Target shoppers to get the last few packages, and open it with joy and anticipation, only to find that my house was shattered into about a million pieces. Although I was more than happy to give myself a sugar coma by sucking frosting from out of a plastic bag, next time I am going to read up on which brand offers the thickest, sturdiest gingerbread houses.

I supplemented the candy that came in the package with additional hard candies. We were also joined by Archie, who contrary to popular belief, was NOT photoshopped into this picture. To give your friends some refreshments, I STRONGLY suggest making a large batch of mulled wine- find the recipe from this earlier post.

The range of outcomes was wide, to say the least.

Katie had the right idea, while I attacked a village of sour patch kids.

My “house,” if you can even call it that, looks like the left over rubble from a zombie attack. It was delicious. Enjoy, folks.
