Graham Wafer House


This "gingerbread" house is made with graham wafers and is easier for little hands than one made with traditional gingerbread.

 
Materials
  • Graham wafers
  • Cardboard milk carton
  • Ornamental Frosting
  • Gumdrops, candy, raisins, chocolate chips, LifeSavers, cereal, and other edible decorations

Directions

  1. Make Ornamental Frosting to hold the house together. Use the frosting to cement graham wafers to the sides of a cardboard milk carton (remember to cover the frosting with a damp cloth when you're not using it).
  2. Allow the frosting to set partially before adding the roof.
  3. Decorate with gumdrops, candies, raisins, chocolate chips, LifeSavers, cereal, and so on.
