Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons

House of Spooky S’mores

Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links.

We have always wanted to make a gingerbread house for Christmas and have never gotten around to it. 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 House of Spooky S’mores! Our entire s’mores house is made with graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. This was so fun to make with my boys and they LOVED it!

Here is my toddler doing some marshmallow shopping with a shopping basket!:)

House of Spooky S’more’s

Honey Maid Graham Crackers
Pillsbury Chocolate Frosting
Betty Crocker Chocolate Cookie Frosting
Jumbo Chocolate Chips
Assorted Jet-Puffed Marshmallows (Ghosts, Jumbo Pumpkins, Stacker Marshmallows (for smores), Marshmallow Bits, Jumbo Marshmallows)
Wilton Green Color Spray
Yellow & Black Edible Markers

We 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. 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.

We placed our house on a plate and placed graham crackers around the house (for the yard). We frosted the yard & roof with Pillsbury chocolate forsting. We place jumbo chocolate chips upside down on the roof to look like shingles.

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. Dry faces on the ghosts and pumpkins using the black edible marker. We cut a jumbo marshamallow in half and colored it yellow with yellow edible marker (for the spooky moon). We then made the bats with black edible marker. We cut out the door and windows from the stacker marshmallows. We decorated with the chocolate cookie frosting. We used a mashmallow bit for the door knob. We attached everything on using the cookie frosting.
