Blend butter and brown sugar until creamy. Beat in the molasses. Add 1 cup flour, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg and blend. Add the remaining flour alternately with 1/3 cup water. It may be necessary to knead the last cup of flour by hand as the dough will be very stiff. Form the dough into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Let set for 20 minutes before rolling. Roll and cut out gingerbread boys.  Preheat oven to 350°. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.  

Place candy writers in an electric skillet on lowest setting lined with 5 dry towels, OR turn on heating pad set at lowest setting.   (Allow 2 hours for candy to melt.) Attach icing eyes with white candy writer.
