Graham Cracker Gingerbread House

Graham Cracker Gingerbread House

Graham Cracker Gingerbread House

With Sour Punch® and Red Vines® Candy

graham cracker gingerbread house with candy


  • 6 graham crackers

  • 1 cup of powdered sugar

  • 1 tablespoon of meringue powder

  • 2 tablespoons of warm water

01. Prepare Graham Crackers and Make Icing

You’ll need a total of six graham crackers to build a graham cracker gingerbread house. The two graham crackers you’ll use for the roof will remain whole (A). To make the sides of the house, use a serrated knife to gently saw off the ends of two of the graham crackers. You’ll make the cuts halfway between the middle and the end of each (B).

To make the front and back, repeat the cuts you made for the sides of the gingerbread house. Then, make diagonal cuts at one of the long ends to form peaks (C). Discard the tiny triangles you slice off.

To make the icing, whisk the powdered sugar and meringue powder together in a bowl. Drizzle in the water and use an electric hand mixer to whip for 5 to 6 minutes, until stiff peaks form. Transfer the icing to a piping bag fitted with a round tip.*

02. Assemble Gingerbread House with Icing

Set a piece of sturdy cardboard on your work surface. Apply icing to the long edge of a B piece and press it firmly into the cardboard until it stands up on its own. Apply icing to the side and bottom edges of a C piece and attach it to the B piece while pressing it down into the cardboard. Repeat with the other C piece.

Use icing to attach the other B piece to the cardboard and the front and back pieces. Finally, apply icing to the diagonal edges of the C pieces and attach the roof. Allow the frosting to dry and harden for at least six hours, or overnight.

03. Make Roof Shingles with Sour Punch Bites

To make the roof shingles, spill a bag of Sour Punch Assorted Bites onto a large cutting board and cut the pieces in half crosswise. Spread a layer of frosting on one of the roof pieces and apply the Sour Punch Assorted Bites in an alternating color pattern. Repeat on the other side.

Apply a few dots of icing on the top of the roof, where the two side A pieces meet at a peak. Trim a Red Vines Grape Twist to fit the length of the roof and press down lightly.

04. Decorate Gingerbread House

Get creative with decorating the rest of your graham cracker gingerbread house! Use Red Vines Sugar Free Strawberry Twists to outline the edges, more Sour Punch Assorted Bites for windows, and Red Vines Jumbo Twists for the front pillars.

*Note: Do not use store-bought frosting for this recipe. It will not dry and harden enough to keep your graham cracker gingerbread house sturdy for decorating.

Meanwhile, mix the chocolate frosting and vanilla frosting in a bowl. Add more vanilla frosting for a lighter brown or more chocolate frosting for a darker brown.

03. Frost and Decorate Cookies
