FOOD FUN: Gingerbread Men Sleigh

Over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house we go!

These sleighs are made from sweet rolls and mini gingerbread men, with candy cane runners.

We discovered it on the Facebook page of St. Pierre bakery. We recommended their product line earlier this fall.

It’s fun to make, and even more fun to eat as a sweet snack.
 
 
RECIPE: GINGERBREAD MEN SLEIGH

Ingredients Per Sleigh

  • 1 chocolate chip brioche roll or other oblong sweet roll
  • 2 mini gingerbread men
  • 2 small candy canes
  • Royal icing to affix
  •  
    RECIPE: ROYAL ICING

    Ingredients

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon meringue powder
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons water
  •  
    Note that this makes enough icing for 4 sleighs, but not enough to ice a batch of cookies.
     
    Preparation

    1. CUT wide slots in the top of the roll with a sharp knife. Insert the gingerbread men.

    2. MAKE the royal icing. Mix the ingredients until the icing stiffens. If it appears too stiff, add more water, a bit at a time.

    3. PLACE the roll on wax paper or parchment. Use a small knife or spreader to coat one side of the candy canes with icing. Press into the roll and let dry.
