Step By Step  

Mini gingerbread houses are an adorable way to get into the holiday spirit.

As prepared by Party Pinching,

By using graham crackers and Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal you can easily make an entire village of sweet, festive houses. 

Decorating gingerbread houses was one of my favorite things to do during the holidays when I was little. It was so much fun!

It was also a chore.

Baking the gingerbread, making the icing and then holding it together until you thought your arms would fall off before it would set.

The worst part was when the roof slid off. Then you knew you were doomed to start all over.

Store-bought cookie icing and graham crackers change all that. I found that Betty Crocker’s Cookie Icing pouches are easy to pipe, and the icing sets up fast. I was able to get to the fun decorating part in a matter of minutes! (Not to mention I didn’t have any clean up or prep.)

So crank up that Christmas music, and let’s get started!

 

Mini Gingerbread Christmas Houses

You’ll need some graham crackers, white Betty Crocker cookie Icing, Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal and a variety of candy and sprinkles.

Using a sharp knife, cut a full-size graham cracker so it has a point for the roofline. Graham crackers are easier to cut than you think; just press down on your knife firmly and don’t use a sawing motion.

Next, cut or snap a full graham cracker in half for the sides of the house.

Assemble the graham walls to form the base of the house and let it sit for about 15 minutes so it can set up. While you’re waiting, gather up some fun and festive sprinkles and candy to decorate your house with.

Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal makes the PERFECT roof. Snap a full graham in half and attach to the top of the house with icing. Next spread some icing on the top of the roof graham and place the cereal on top, overlapping them a little to make them look like shingles.

Use your imagination and decorate your houses with sprinkles and candy. You can also use the cookie icing to make cute little icicles on the houses! Place on a bed of coconut for a sweet winter scene.

Tips  

If you want to add trees to your village, pipe cookie icing on upside down ice cream cones and decorate with crystal sugar sprinkles for a glittery tree. Or attach Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cereal to an upside down ice cream cone with icing and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar for a snowy tree.

Total time varies depending on how many houses you want to make and how much you decorate them.
