Never too old for an advent calendar, right? I usually get the chocolate ones, but I'm usually not the biggest fan of the chocolate so this year I decided to make my own with gingerbread. Have you got your advent calendar ready?

All you need for this is a branch, some gingerbread, some twine or string to tie the cookies with. I chose a pretty sturdy branch I found int he woods near my house, and then used a saw to get it down to the right length. I used this recipe to bake the cookies, and then made the holes with a toothpick before putting them in the oven. Let the countdown to Christmas begin!


  1. This is such a cute idea and it looks
    amazing as decoration, too. :)

  3. This is such an adorable idea! I'm a bit late in the game for an advent calendar at this point, but I'm SO keeping this in mind for next year!
