Gingerbread Kit

As I was placing an order online, I asked Max what he would like to bake this week. After scrolling through a number of items, he chose the Gingerbread Kit.

Having already had sprinkles, from were we have made Chocolate Rice Krispies Cakes a number of times, I suggested he could use these too, but only of he wanted to.

Mmm… chocolate…

If you don’t have grease proof paper, butter/margarine is just as good, as chef Maximus demonstrates here.
