mini superhero gingerbread men.....!


 ...so i know, i know i've done superhero themed stuff a bunch of times already, and last year did these superhero gingerbread men and women....


....and although i really enjoyed doing them, they did take some time to do....so i thought i'd share this simple version and they are mini! win-win right??



...i got a mini gingerbread man silicone pan for my birthday last month (thanks Sus and Ebb!)....and then just used a boxed gingerbread cookie mix....and baked them up in the pan!


just be sure to bake long enough so the cookies are firm enough to pop out of the mold (had a couple of gingerbread men with some issues, but no worries they didn't go to waste!) or you could also freeze them for a bit before popping them out....aren't they cute even un-decorated??


then just pipe on some simple superhero logos with candy melts/wafers (you could use royal icing too, but i always have different colored candy melt around so this is much faster for me).....and in case you can't guess, from left to right from the top:

x-men, green lantern, batman, wonder woman, fantastic four, superman, iron man, captain america, the flash, spiderman, and the punisher


...and really these probably took less than an hour or so once baked (which took hardly no time because i used a boxed cookie mix)....this year i'm all about taking some short cuts to make my life easier (but still fun!)


...have a happy happy holiday season!!!....i'm so enjoying all the fun christmas and holiday goodies being shared out there....you people are so dang creative! thanks as always for stopping by!
