Easy no-bake S'mores Houses are made from Graham crackers, chocolate, mini marshmallows and store-bought icing. A fun project for little hands.
These little houses were all over Pinterest last fall with Halloween themes and were so cute.
Today, we made them Christmas-themed for some Christmas In July fun! It's hot today and no one wants to melt in a warm kitchen.
This is a really quick and easy project and especially suited for little hands with some supervision required.
The cookies can be cut using a butter knife. You can slide the knife back and forth with a cutting motion and the cookies cut very easily. This step can easily be prepped in advanced.
Change up the candy decorations to your favourites or keep it simple and stick to the traditional s'mores with graham cookies, marshmallow and chocolates without the added candy!
You will, however need the white icing as it will act as the 'glue' to hold on the mini marshmallows.
- one box of Graham Cracker Cookies
- mini marshmallows
- store bought white icing (green and red optional)
- holiday sprinkles
- milk chocolate that is easily cut into squares (for door)
- other candies for decoration - Swedish berries, M&M candies, candy canes.
HOW TO MAKE S'MORES GINGERBREAD HOUSES
Start by cutting the cookie on an angle to shape the roof. This is easy using a butter knife. You will have better results by sliding the knife back and forth instead of trying to press down hard and chop through it.
Next, use the store-bought white icing to pipe icing on the roof line. I bought the type in the bag with the tip already attached from Wilton.
If you buy the icing in the tub, you will need a disposable decorator bag with a small tip.
Alternatively, you could put it on using the end of a toothpick.
Once you've pipe the icing, carefully place the marshmallows into the icing. (or whatever candy you would prefer)
Pipe some icing on the bottom section of the house and smooth it out using a toothpick or a butter knife.
Add a piece of chocolate for the door and add sprinkles.
You can also pipe the icing along the bottom of the house and add candies on top or leave it plain.
A vivid imagination will come up with all types of icing and candy combinations!
