Our Mini Family: Hot Tubbin' Gingerbread Man


Dec 7, 2014

Hot Tubbin' Gingerbread Man

Sometimes we take Christmas baking too seriously. 

Why not lighten things up and give a few laughs this year and bring hot tubbin' gingerbread men to your house and to your parties this season?


He looks quite content in his little cup o' cappuccino, doesn't he?!


Directions:
1. Prepare (or buy if you're pressed on time and need a last minute party idea!) normal gingerbread men per usual. I prefer spiced gingerbread men and use The Comfort of Cooking blog's recipe here
2. Grab some royal icing and then separate them and food coloring: we left one alone to get white eyes, added black to add his mustache, and added red for his buttons! 
3. Put your royal icing into separate piping bags and only decorate after the cookies are cooled!
4. After you've decorated your fancy gingerbread men, brew up a cup of cocoa (or cappuccino like we prepared) leaving 1 inch of room, and dunk him in!
Tip: if you are going to use hot cocoa, add marshmallow or Fluff to the cup and leave about 1/2 inch of room so that your cup will not overflow when you add him in! You will want to add some marshmallow to give that frothy, hot tub bubbles effect for sure!


OH! And if you're looking for a great gift idea this year and you live in the Phoenix area, check out As You Wish Pottery Painting Place! You can make a lovely mug like the one shown and give it to someone you love!
