Gramma In a Box November 2018 Review
This card describes the candy and cookie projects for this month. On the back, it lists the contents of the box as well as a list of items that you would need from home. It also mentioned that the two sheets of included wax paper were to be used as placemats to make for easy cleanup. This month’s theme is Thanksgiving and the vibe throughout definitely felt like fall.
Project #1: Acorn Kisses
The first candy project was Acorn Kisses. Each recipe comes on its own card with the ingredients listed on the back. They are always labeled in the order that you should make them so everything is well- planned out and easy to follow.
The first step was to unwrap the Hershey Kisses and set them out with the mini vanilla wafers and chocolate chips. Then we put the melting chocolate into a bowl and microwaved it for one minute and stirred it until it was smooth.
We were supposed to add a dollop of chocolate on the flat side and then place the Kiss on top and add a dollop on the other side to add the chocolate chip, but we did one candy piece at a time since the chocolate was so smooth and it needed a minute to set so the Kiss wouldn’t fall off.
Once our Kisses were more secure, we added our chocolate chips to the other side and our acorns were complete! Cute, simple, and chocolatey!
Project #2: Pretzel Turkeys
I forgot to include a picture of the contents from the pretzel container, but it included candy eyes and candy-coated sunflower seeds so that we could create little pretzel turkeys.
Our first step was to add a dollop of the melted chocolate from our first project and then add three pieces of candy corn to the top for feathers and then add the candy eyes and the sunflower seed as a beak.
A few of our candy corn pieces were broken, and I’m pretty sure my son snuck a few, but we managed to get a few that resembled turkeys! My 2-year-old’s are a little funky looking, but he had a lot of fun making them and of course, we all enjoyed eating them. I think anytime there is a project involving chocolate and pretzels, my family is happy!
Project #3: Fall Cookie Decorating
The last activity was the cookie decorating, which is always the kids’ favorite part!
We received two large turkeys, two leaves and four acorns with yellow, orange and brown icing and three separate types of sprinkles.
My son went a little crazy with the sprinkles and icing this time, but normally we have plenty leftover.
Here are our decorated cookies! I think this might be the first time we have managed to make it through without my son eating one before it’s decorated.
We all really enjoyed our candy crafts this month, even though we seemed to get a bit messier than usual, but I think that’s because this is the first time my son wasn’t in his high chair and had full access to everything! My favorite treats were the turkey pretzels, although I think it would have been nice to have larger pretzels to work with since the candy corn pieces were so big! In the end, we had 6 acorns, 6 turkeys and 8 cookies. It was the perfect amount of treats for the kids and me to share!
I always appreciate the individual recipe cards for each project because they are easy to save and use again if we find one that we really like.
I love how easy clean up is each month. I literally just put all of the empty containers and papers into the box that it ships in and throw it in the recycle bin. After a quick wipe up, I get to spend that time enjoying some treats with the kids instead of doing dishes! This was a perfect rainy day activity for after lunch!
Verdict: This was another fun Gramma In A Box for us. I love how excited my kids get when they know we have a “Gramma Box” to do! We liked the fall themed treats and colors that we got to work with and they were all very tasty as well! As a mom, I appreciate how well organized the box is and that the projects are well thought out and include step by step directions. It feels very homemade, yet they always make sure to include important ingredient and allergen information. This box costs $20 per month and the value in this box is definitely in the way it is organized leaving no work for me, but instead providing a fun, stress-free family activity to occupy the kids and allow us to spend some quality time.
