But I will have to either try the ones Sams had, or learn to make my own, because these were the nastiest tasting gingerbread houses & candy that I have ever tasted!! I will never buy the Wilton ones again!! Any good recipes out there?

When I was like 7 years old, maybe younger, I remember my mom making gingerbread houses. She used real candy, and I remember them being so cute, and so dang the coolest things ever! I am sure I was about 7 or 8, and that my mom had her 5th or 6th child, and gingerbread houses were never made again.
For years I have wanted to make them with my kids, but recipe after recipe I found I had to roll out the dough, etc... to me, just a chore!! But for the last few years I have seen the pre-made ones by Wilton at the stores. I would debate, and end up not getting them because I was to cheap to buy them. This year I went to Texas-side Walmart, and they were $3 off on Christmas Eve morning. I bought 4. I had just been to Sams, and they had some for $9.99 but they weren't pre-assembled, so I opted not to get those. I get home from Texarkana, and the fun begins! The frosting was made, and visions for the perfect-looking gingerbread house was, well... visioned!

Awwwww, so careful with those round candies!
