Sour Jacks Holiday Dessert Challenge‏ #challenge #holidays

It is that time of year again. Christmas is in just a few days. Wow hope all you are ready because I know I am not but I am trying to get everything done. The kids are off school and we are starting our holiday baking and making all the fun treats. So today we made our annual gingerbread houses and they turned out so adorable.
We got some of our favorite candies, Sour Jacks, to use in a holiday treat and we thought they would be perfect for our gingerbread house decorations. We got graham crackers, icing, and a variety of candy, sprinkles and went to work making our houses. About a hour or so later we each had some adorable, fun and unique houses. This has become a tradition in our house. Do you have any traditions? Have you done gingerbread houses? We would love to see how your guys houses turned out!
Another treat we love making with the Sour Jacks is a bark. We take a cookie pan line it with wax paper. Then we spread some of the yummy sour jacks in all different flavors around the pan. Next we take pretzel sticks and break them up some and sprinkle it around on the pan. When that is done we take a package of chocolate any variety you like and melt it in microwave for about 3 minutes. Then we pour the melted chocolate over the pretzels and sour jacks. We then set it in the refrigerator to cool. Once it is hardened we take it out and break it into pieces and serve. YUM!
So what is some great holiday recipes you make? We would love for you to share them with us. Also don't forget to share your gingerbread house pictures as well. We can't wait to see what you all made. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday! Cheers!
