Edible Haunted House

February 12th, 2013 posted by Amanda Formaro

Here’s a fun Halloween project for the whole family. Use your imagination to decorate this house any way that you desire. Watch out for ghouls and goblins, they may just devour your masterpiece early!

You will need:

2 containers (16 ounce) chocolate fudge frosting*

2 empty 1 qt. milk cartons, rinsed and dried

1 large tray covered with foil.

*You can use a thick homemade frosting instead.

Decorations:

pretzel sticks

graham crackers

black licorice and red twists

candy corn

M&Ms

Foil wrapped Halloween Candy

rice crackers

Orange Sprinkles

Colored icing for writing or decorating 

If you make this project

we’d love to see it! Just send your photos and comments to the editor and it may get published on our Facebook fan page !

What you do

Tape each milk carton closed at top. Tape milk cartons together to make a house. Wrap with foil. Attach firmly to the covered tray with tape. Frost cartons with chocolate frosting. Frost the tray also to use as the lawn. Decorate with the assorted treats!

Some ideas

*Sprinkle orange sugar on the roof of the house. *Rice crackers make neat “attic” windows. *graham crackers for windows and doors-highlight with icing. *pretzel stick window panes *M&M “pathway stones” leading to the door. *Candy corn “icicles” under the roof After you have the house and pathway finished add details to the lawn area. Foil wrapped candy is great because you buy little mummies, ghosts or pumpkins and place them on the pathway and around the house. Buy from the bulk section of your grocery store to get a really good selection without having to buy a lot of one type of candy. After all the oohs and ahs have subsided and Halloween is over, let the kids pick off all the candy while they discuss what to do for next year’s Haunted House Spectacular!
