Expert Tips

More About This Recipe
  • 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! 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. So start your own hassle-free holiday tradition and have some candy-coated fun making a village of Mini Gingerbread Christmas Houses!
