Chocolate Gingerbread Men Lollipops

Morning friends! It is Christmas Eve Day...what a fun day for kids and adults alike. I really hope that you are happy with all you got done for the big day tomorrow. Remember, it isn't about the presents or what you'll be is about remembering our Savior's birth. Maybe take some time to read the Christmas story in the Bible tonight or tomorrow to stay Christ centered.

Well, you wanted to see them and so here they are. Please don't laugh at my decorating skills! I'm sure I could have done better if I had the right tools but I didn't think far enough ahead to make sure I had what I needed. Anyway, these gingerbread men are dark chocolate and the frosting is just a cookie frosting which worked much better than the gel frosting. I just placed them in a cellophane bag and tied it with a ribbon to make them a little more festive. We'll head out to our local emergency dispatch center to take them these lollipops along with some gingerbread chocolate chip cookies. Unlike law enforcement, dispatchers aren't allowed to leave and go home throughout the day so we like to be sure to take them something special to snack on.

Whatever your plans I hope you have a wonderful day today. Enjoy your family and friends and remember Jesus is the one who can make up truly happy...not our spouse, kids, or the gifts under the tree.

Absolutely adorable. I think you did a fantastic job. You are so kind to take these to the dispatchers. A lot of the time I think they are forgotten.

Aw, Lorie! They are so cute! I love them! You're such a sweetie to remember the dispatchers. And you gave a great reminder of what we need to focus on- Our Savior.

Hugs to you and yours, Merry Christmas!
