Our Gramma in a Box arrived and I was pretty excited to see what was in it this time! This box centers on Minions and Emojis. How neat is that?
So, Gramma in a Box always arrives in her red box with stickers on the outside. You just know that there is something special inside. Gramma in a Box never fails to meet expectations!! The box arrives with just about everything you need to complete the projects. And the items you need to add are pretty common kitchen items. We needed a microwave safe bowl, a spoon, a knife and of course you need a microwave. As a side not though the microwave is to melt the chocolate pieces and there is a stove top method to do this if necessary.
Each Gramma in a Box starts with 4 cards. An introduction card and then the recipe cards. The recipe cards give step by step instructions on how to complete each project and it lists the ingredients on the back with allergy warnings. The ingredients are separated into small containers, so you can pull out what you need for each project. She also includes wax paper to make your creations on.
Our first project this month was Emoji Pops. We pulled out the necessary items and melted the chocolate to start. First you get a little melted chocolate on the end of your provided stick and then insert it in a marshmallow. Then dip or roll the marshmallow in the chocolate. Dip top of the marshmallow in the brown jimmies for hair. Use the candy decorations to create your emoji faces. They came out so adorable.
Next we made the Minion Bites. Basically the Rice Krispie mix coated in yellow chocolate and sprinkled liberally with the blue jimmies. Pretty neat looking.
Last of all were the Minion/Emoji cookies to decorate. They came with yellow, blue and red frosting, already to decorate with, just snip a small hole in the tip of the bag. Then add leftover candy decorations of eyes, mustache, hearts, and bow ties. There are blue and gold sugar sprinkles and of course you can use the leftover jimmies. I think they came out looking pretty good.
One last thing was in the box and that is the Gramma in a Box business card. You can subscribe with an auto debit program for only $20 per month…and the first box is only $10 – no code needed. There are several other options on her website as well. Neighbors, this is a really neat subscription box to do with your children, grandchildren, or nieces and nephews. Could you just go purchase everything yourself and come up with your own projects? Probably, but you would have to find projects and purchase the supplies. This way, everything is already planned, you have everything you need, and you don't realize in the middle of a project that you forgot something. I am really impressed with the quality of Gramma in a Box and she comes up with new projects each month. Purchase one for yourself to do with the children, or send it to someone as a gift. If you do sign up, be sure to share some of your project photos with Gramma in a Box on her social media. We would love to see the pics too!!
