Another month, another fun Gramma in a Box. Every month my kids look forward to getting this subscription box in the mail. They’ve really got Gramma figured out now and know exactly when it will arrive. Both of my girls came home from school on the day it arrived and asked “Where’s the Gramma in a Box?” I’m not sure how they knew but they were right!
So, what is Gramma in a Box you ask? It’s a subscription service that comes with everything you need to make 2 candy crafts plus one cookie decorating kit for just $20. It’s a pretty great deal considering the cost of the supplies to make these items plus the time it would take to gather them.
My youngest daughter was at basketball practice so my older daughter got this Gramma in a Box all to herself. My other daughter did get to enjoy the finished products when she got home though so her disappointment was short lived.
This month’s box was Thanksgiving/Fall themed and the first project was Turkey Buddies. You start by heating the melting chocolate slowly in the microwave. Once it’s ready, coat the Ritz crackers with the chocolate, add candy corn for feathers, candy eyes and pumpkin seeds for the beak. Make sure you don’t overdo it with the melting chocolate because the leftovers are used for project number two. A couple of the Ritz were broken but only on the edge. Often my girls will just “glue” them back together with the melting chocolate. Sometimes we even have extra ingredients in our pantry that we can improvise with.
