Happy Holidays from Pounce!

Run, run, run, as fast as you can… it’s time to make your own gingerbread man! It’s always a deliciously fun time when you decorate one the way you want! Frosting, gumdrops, and sprinkles are just a few of the tools you get to work with when constructing your cookie. Now you can put that creativity to work and color one for Pounce to eat!

The holidays always bring out dozens of interesting foods and treats that we only taste during special occasions. Pounce’s favorite winter treat is a nice, warm gingerbread cookie fresh out of the oven. Yet if he manages to be patient long enough for the cookies to cool down, he can decorate them with his favorite winter candies. This way, they’re even more magical to look at – and tastier, too!

What do you prefer on your gingerbread cookies – more decorations, or less? Pounce loves adding frosting, chocolates, gummies, and more! To make eyes, try round candies like M&Ms or Skittles. For the smile, you can use rope candies like Twizzlers or Red Vines. YUM! For a finishing touch, Pounce likes to add something silly like Swedish Fish to be the gingerbread man’s pets. However you like your cookies, Pounce the ocelot can’t wait to share them with you!
