Healthy Graham Cracker Gingerbread Style Houses






These were tests for work in August - hence the different roofs and sides, though they will look much crazier than these when we make them next week with the boys.
They're a "healthy" option to the candy versions and we actually ate these after I took the pictures.








 

The houses are constructed using peanut butter- JIFF peanut butter, as it held them together the best. Also, building them on a cracker base meant I could move them around and they were pretty sturdy.



I tested cream cheese but they just fell apart after about 30 minutes. 




Trim the graham cracker walls with a serrated knife.  


Spoon several tablespoons of peanut butter into a quart plastic bag and snip the corner off, then pipe the PB onto the edges and stick the house together. 

I added the roof bits before attaching them to the top edges. Then added windows, doors and garden/walkway details.
 










 


The kitchen was a mess but it was fun.
