Recipe: Gingerbread Men

Gingerbread men

I am settling into my 10 whole days off work, involving much eating, drinking and general merriment. Chris and I decorated our first proper Christmas tree last week (I’m so sad that Christmas Day in already over and we’ll have to take it down soon), and we’ve also discovered a new addiction in the form of hot mulled cider.

To continue the first-time festivities we decided to make our first ever gingerbread men yesterday, using this simple gingerbread men recipe, and we simply added raisins for eyes just before popping them into the oven. Now I can say they’re healthy because they contain fruit, right? ;) This is such an easy recipe and they taste amazing! We also had a lot of fun decorating them with icing pens.

If you fancy having a go at some baking, I suggest you do so while listening to this Christmas Classics playlist I made on YouTube earlier this week.
