When I was a kid, I remember making Graham Cracker "Gingerbread" Houses at a Holiday party. We took half pieces of graham crackers and stuck them to little milk cartons, like the ones you get at school, with regular frosting.

I wanted to try to recreate this (but without a pesky milk carton in the way). You can use whatever frosting you want! There is no wrong one to use :)

Step 1: Supplies

You can use pretty much anything you can find, but I will list exactly what I used. I will talk, in the steps, about what I think are good alternatives for what I used.


    I mostly went with what I already had sitting around my kitchen, but you can really use anything you want to decorate your house. Here are some other suggestions to get you started.

    • Gumdrops
    • Mini Candy Canes
    • Skittles
    • Chocolate chips/Mini chocolate chips
    • Jolly Ranchers: Could look cute crushed and sprinkled on the roof
    • Candy Wafers: or other flat candies that can be used as roof tiles
    • Mike and Ikes
    • Hershey bar pieces
    • Andies Mints
    • Smarties
    • Colored Icing/frosting
    • Golden Grahams cereal: great for shingles
      Thanks :)
      Neat idea!
      Thanks :)
      Yum! Imagine doing a haunted house or something on Halloween with chocolate graham crackers (do they have those?) and having fairy floss as cobwebs and licorice spiders! As always, great ible and nice idea! Hope it tasted great!
      Are you serious about chocolate graham crackers?!?
      Sorry, I'm Australian..... Never had a graham cracker in my life..... But I googled it... You could always dust them with cocoa or something....
