Here’s the Box Breakdown
Our first glimpse inside the Gramma in a Box
Everything that we received in our Gramma in a Box for April. Such spring-y colors! The theme for this box is “Spring Cookies & Candy” our children will be pleased.
So what is all this stuff?
Our box inserts. The first tells us about this month’s theme and the subscription while each of the others outlines our recipes. There are 3 in total. Each Gramma in a Box will give you 20 finished pieces!
Our three recipes for the month
These will be used in our bird’s nest recipe
We received 3 bags of icing in fun spring pastel colors. All we need to do for this is knead it and cut the tip and we are set!
This sugar will be used to decorate our cookies
These mini jelly beans will be used in our bird’s nest treat. (They’re the eggs in the nest!)
This chocolate will be melted and used to make our marshmallow flowers
And if you didn’t see where we were headed with the last item… these multi-colored marshmallows are for our marshmallow flowers
These 6 paper cups will hold our colorful bird’s nests.
The cookies that we received were shrink wrapped and cut into fun Easter shapes like; eggs, bunnies and flowers.
Can we take a second and just acknowledge how pretty this color is? This is also used in decorating our cookies.
Rainbow Jimies. Why not?!
Okay so now what?
Now we get to creating!
First up was our marshmallow flowers recipe. We love how simple these recipes are and how the candy keeps the kids attentions for much longer than usual!
Our first step is to melt our chocolate
We end up with this
Then we sort our marshmallows by color (secret educational moment slipped in there by gramma!)
Next we’ll put a dollop of the chocolate on a piece of our wax paper and then arrange the marshmallows around it. We also place one mallow right in the center. These came out cute – but get a good look because they (and everything else we made with this box) didn’t last long.
The second recipe is the Colorful Bird’s Nests
We mix our fruity pebbles and the other half of our melting chocolate together in a bowl. By the way… this is what the little helpers do while they’re supposed to be mixing
You end up with this sort of mixture
You’ll then spoon it into your paper cups
And then add your mini jelly beans. These were super pretty… we have to admit. And according to Oliver, “Pretty tasty.”
Our final recipe is our cookie decorating recipe
First we line up our cookies and get our icing tubes ready
Then we just let Oliver have a great time. He added whatever designs he thought looked cool.
He really enjoyed adding the sprinkles as well.
Our finished products!
So in summary
We can’t break Gramma in a Box down the way we do most subscriptions because we have a pretty good idea what we’re getting when we subscribe. We can say though that this is a fantastic way to be “around” when you can’t be or to even just get more active with the children in your life. Our kids loved this box and there isn’t a CRUMB left over. They’ve stolen and begged for every last treat. It’s a clever subscription with an awesome concept!
