Gramma In a Box “Butterflies and Blossoms Cookies and Candy” 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 mentions that the two sheets of included wax paper were to be used as placemats to make for easy cleanup. This month’s theme is Butterflies and Blossoms Cookies and Candy.
Project #1: Pretzel Butterflies
The first candy project was to make Pretzel Butterflies. We always love any activities that involve melting chocolate and pretzels! My daughter was especially excited over the idea of making butterflies. Our recipes each come on their own card with a list of ingredients on the back. Everything is well-planned out and easy to follow since they are always labeled in the order that you should make them with important information written in red.
The first step was to melt our chocolate wafers in the microwave and stir them until the chocolate was smooth. I love this pretty lavender color! While my son stirred the chocolate, my daughter got to work setting out our pretzels.
I dipped the ends of our pretzels in the chocolate and then we set the two ends together to form a butterfly. The kids added the little licorice piece to the center to form the body of our butterflies. Then we topped with sprinkles and were done!
These were cute, tasty treats that were super easy to make. I always love pretzel crafts because I feel like I can let the kids be independent with it and we can always repeat these activities on a rainy day with our own supplies!
Project #2: Butterfly Bark
The next project was to make Butterfly Bark using Rice Krispies and our leftover chocolate from the first project.
We stirred the Krispies into our chocolate bowl and then I poured it out into a large rectangle on our wax paper. My daughter then added this fun sprinkle mixture to the top that was full of a variety of sprinkles, some of which were fruity and teeny tiny marshmallows.
We were able to cut this into 6 smaller pieces to share. It was delicious and crunchy thanks to all of the fun sprinkles!
Project #3: Spring Cookie Decorating
The last activity was our cookie decorating, which is always a family favorite.
We received eight cookies to decorate; two large butterflies, two small butterflies, two large flowers, and two small flowers. Our icing came in pink, dark purple and green and they also provided several different containers of sprinkles that we could use in addition to the leftover sprinkles from our candy projects.
This always makes for a fun activity each month! The kids are getting pretty good at it and I love how independent they can be with their designs!
Of course, eating them is always their most favorite part!
Here are all of our finished products. There were 20 in total: 8 cookies, 6 pretzel butterflies, and 6 small pieces of butterfly bark. It’s great for a few sweet treats for everyone in the family without feeling like we have over-indulged!
I always appreciate the individual recipe cards for each project because they are easy to save and use again! Sorry, I accidentally used the Butterfly Bark sheet for our cookie photo! It gets intense when the kids are begging for their cookies while you take a few photos! 😉
Clean up is always a breeze, too! I usually just recycle all of our plastic containers and wrap in the box that it all arrived in and then after a quick wipe…sometimes two, we are free to move on to our next activity! I love that there aren’t a ton of dirty dishes or ingredients to put away because we use everything they send to us!
Verdict: Gramma In A Box is something that my kids and I look forward to each month. We all know what to expect when it arrives and it becomes a fun activity that we can do in an almost routine way since we are so familiar with the process. It is a great activity that doesn’t take any planning on my part and allows us to spend some time together as a family being creative! This $20 box has such a homemade feel, but it is so well organized and planned out that all I have to do is open up and enjoy, which holds a lot of value for us as a family!
