There are exactly twenty four days left until Christmas! Are you freaking out yet? Since it’s December first I decided to start the month with a fun memory and giveaway. Let’s jump right into the spirit of things shall we?

If you’ve been stopping by for at least a year, you might remember these.

I had to redo them. Well, I didn’t have to but I really wanted to! They’re way too cute and fun to pass up making. I think they’ll become a yearly tradition. The girls were dying to grab them and take a bite.

Since making them last year I’ve had many comments asking about the mold – where did I find it? It’s a regional store but unfortunately they only carried that mold last year! I checked this year. I was sad. I wanted to buy some to give to some lucky readers – you! Apparently the stars were aligned because on another trip back I happened upon one lonely blue snowflake mold sitting with the loads of green trees and red gingerbread men. One! I snatched it up so fast. There was no letting that sucker go.

    Where did you get the snowflake mold from?? The ones that I found come from China and would love to avoid having to pay that shipping. Thanks.

      I purchased mine two years ago at a regional store called The Christmas Tree Shop, but I have seen similar molds on both amazon and ebay.

    I love our tradition of hiding the tiny pickle ornament on the tree and whoever finds it gets a special gift.

    How big are these? Is there peppermint candies on top and in between the layers?

      The bark will dimensions vary depending on the molds you use. And yes, as stated in the directions, there are crushed candy canes between the layers. Enjoy! :)
