January Gramma in a Box



Hey neighbors!!

If you have never heard of Gramma in a Box, you are missing out!!  This is a really fun box to complete with your children, grandchildren, even your spouse.  My husband actually helped me with mine this month!!  He melted the chocolate discs, mixed ingredients and even decorated a couple cookies.  Of course he ate quite a few too!!

We started out with the New Year Sparklers.  After he melted the chocolate discs we dipped the pretzel rods in the chocolate, just the tips about 1/3 of the way down.  We then added the pastel dots over the chocolate on the rods.  He barely waited for them to set before he tried one!!



Game Day Crunch was next on our to do list.  For this one we used a bowl to which we added the popcorn, broken up pretzels, cranberries, candy coated chocolate bits and peanuts.  Next we poured the rest of the melted chocolate into the bowl and stirred it all up.  We spread it out on the wax paper that was included in the box.  He definitely ate some of this before it was set.




Last treat we worked on were the cookies.  We received 2 football, two shooting stars and the numbers to make up 2020.  We clipped the tips of the bags the frosting were in and quickly decorated the cookies and then added sprinkles.




Gramma in a Box is a monthly subscription box that comes filled each month with just about everything you need to make there or four treats.  Also included in the box you will find cards for each project that walk you through step by step.  You will also find on the cards information regarding any allergens that might be in that project.  For example this month there were peanuts in one of the projects.

From Terry:   Gramma in a Box is an idea I developed when three of my grandchildren moved to Seattle. I was always boxing up cookies and treats that we could make together when we Skyped.  Once I shared this idea with other friends and family, the concept for Gramma in a Box was born! 

Gramma in a Box ships the first week of each month.  If you are wanting in on the February Valentines box, you must sign up by Feb. 3rd.  Try your first box for $20.  If you sign up to receive the monthly box with a credit or debit card, your first box is just $10.  Subscribe HERE.  Gramma in a Box was featured on one of the local tv stations.  HERE

Thanks for stopping by today!!
