Mini Gingerbread House Recipe
This mini gingerbread house is about as easy as it comes. Instead of mixing and baking gingerbread, simply start with graham crackers! This is a fun, anytime project and kids have just as much fun decorating their own mini house as with a full-blown gingerbread house.
You can put your frosting in a pastry bag or in a Ziploc bag with a tiny hole in one corner. Use graham crackers to make the sides of your gingerbread house. Apply the frosting to hold the crackers together and then allow it to dry and harden.
Once dry, use more frosting, various candies and ribbon to decorate the house. Give each child their own house to decorate as they please. Or make a whole village yourself and use it as a Holiday party centerpiece.
