We received a huge box from Jet-Puffed Marshmallows and thought why wait until Christmas to make a edible fun house? Our big box of goodies was full of fun Halloween marshmallows that would be perfect for a Mini Haunted House!

How To Make A Mini Haunted House

I would like to start off by letting you know how easy it is to cut graham crackers with kitchen scissors. We do this all of the time and we have made a ton of s’mores pops and it works great. Don’t be afraid of breaking them…just make sure to use good and sharp kitchen scissors! We use cookie cutters on them as well!

  • Take 2 of the Honey Maid graham crackers and lay them side by side (touching) on wax paper with the back side facing up. Squeeze chocolate cookie frosting in the middle and let dry.
  • Do the same for 2 more. When they are set and dry prop them up with something tall behind them (like a thick book or tall vase.
  • Take 2 more graham crackers and squeeze frosting on the edges. Prop them up on the sides to set with the front and back. Place a juice glass or something thing and tall in the middle.

  • Then cut another graham cracker into a triangle using kitchen scissors. Squeeze frosting on the edges and place on front and back tops. The glass in the middle with help prop it up if it tilts over a bit. The cookie frosting is great because it dries very quickly.
  • Lay another graham cracker on top (the roof) and measure how much you will need. Cut off any extra with your kitchen scissors. Save your scraps to make the chimney and tomb stones. Let everything dry.
  • Place your house on a plate and place graham crackers around the house (for the yard).
  • Frost the yard and roof with chocolate frosting.
  • Place jumbo chocolate chips upside down on the roof to look like shingles.

Decorating a Mini Haunted House

  • We decorated our marshmallows using edible markers and Wilton green color spray.
  • We made the grass by cutting the stacker marshmallows in half. Then we snipped out small triangles from the sides with our scissors. Place them on waxed paper and spray with the green color spray…let dry.
  • Draw faces on the ghosts and pumpkins using the black edible marker.
  • Cut a jumbo marshmallow in half and color it yellow with yellow edible marker (for the spooky moon).
  • Make the bats with black edible marker.
  • Cut out the door and windows from the stacker marshmallows. Decorate with the chocolate cookie frosting. Use a marshmallow bit for the door knob.
  • Attached everything on using the cookie frosting.

    Great job Jill. The yellow moon looks great as does the entire house. What a fun addition this would make to any Halloween party.

  5. I was just thinking about making some spooky houses too! I can't wait until Christmas. I'm wondering too. How did you get hooked up with the Mallows? I'd love some more info on how you are connecting with brands!
