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.

  • Graham Crackers (I used 4 for house, 2 for base)
  • Icing (represented by my powdered sugar, I used this recipe but added an extra half tablespoon of water cause I wanted it thinner)
  • Christmas (red and green) M&Ms
  • Brown Jimmies (Sprinkles I used before, pretend that is what the cookie is)
  • Christmas Red, Green and Light Green Sprinkles (same as from Christmas Wreath Cookies)
  • Autumn Leaves Sprinkles (barely used these, but bought them cause they were on sale, I'll find a use for them)
  • Twizzlers Pull and Peel
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Leftover Green Marshmallow Fondant
  • Square Chocolate Pieces
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....
