This gingerbread latte pour overs recipe makes four gingerbread meltables. They are the cutest little gingerbread latte people around! I love making these to give as gifts and they've always been a great seller. Below you'll find the exact ingredients and packaging I use. I'm a huge gingerbread fan around the holidays and love gifting these along with my gingerbread caramels.
Ingredients - gingerbread latte pour overs
- white confectionery coating
- I prefer the hobby lobby brand. Stay away from the Wilton brand, it is too thick and waxy. White chocolate may also be used but do not use white chocolate baking chips / baking bar.
- instant dark roast coffee
- It must be instant, and must be dark roast. The darker the better. The confectionery coating adds a lot of sweetness to it and the dark roast balances it out. I use NesCafe and you can find it here on Amazon.
- gingerbread spice blend
- I purchase this from Amazon but you could also blend your own
Equipment - gingerbread latte pour overs
- microwaveable safe large bowl
- tablespoon measure
- ¾ teaspoon measure
- food scale
These molds are a hot item and I've sold them out three times on Amazon. The exact molds I use are VERY HARD to come by, but I spent the better part of this year searching. I finally found a gingerbread man and gingerbread women in stock at a small business based out of Chicago. Please consider ordering from them. The owner, Nancy, has owned her business for 40+ years and is incredibly kind.
- gingerbread man silicone molds
