Making a chocolate gingerbread advent calendar
However you decide to hang your Advent biscuits, remember you’ll be untying them every day. So if you go for a bunting style, you might want to hang them individually from a main string or ribbon. We've baked grown-up sized biscuits, but if you’re making for little ones, scale down the size, then one batch of dough should make enough for two or three children. If you haven’t got enough room to hang three Advent calendars, just make sure the biscuits are thoroughly dry, then hang each day’s treats off the same string.
Create a board for your chocolate gingerbread advent calendar
We painted a sheet of plywood with chalkboard paint (both from Homebase), then used white chalk to draw our Christmas tree, and hung our biscuits on it using drawing pins. If you put up your real tree early enough, you could hang them from there, or tie the biscuits on a long string and hang along a wall.
