I found this recipe originally on Martha Stewart’s site. She used Elmer’s glue in her’s but I wanted to make these “safe”. They look edible, they smell edible but they are not edible. But just in case a little one should get their hands on them and take a nibble… chances are they will wrinkle their nose and run far far away… but I didn’t want the ornament to be toxic just in case!
These ornaments can be used in various ways; hang on a Christmas tree, a plant, decorate a gift package with them, scatter around on the table, hang from your review mirror as a deodorizer, slip them in your soak drawer so your feet smell all holiday-ish… lol
When I made my batch I made them to late in the evening which meant that they weren’t done baking and I wanted to go to bed.. so I transferred them to my dehydrator and dried them all night with the temp set at 145 degrees. Two things… I woke up to the house smelling like a Ginger Bread House (can’t complain there) and they came out perfect. So, keep that in mind if you get in the same situation as I or if you would just rather use your dehydrator and not run your stove. You can’t over dry them in the dehydrator so you can leave it running all day or night. Just an option… I love options. :)
