Haunted Gingerbread Houses


We never do traditional Gingerbread Houses. It is much more fun to do HAUNTED Gingerbread Houses!

        Here’s what you need:

  • Candy (Halloween colors or style)
  • Graham Crackers
  • Frosting (I used fudge frosting this year)

My husband gave me the, “I don’t know” look the first time I told him, but he was a trooper and did it with me. Now it is his favorite Halloween tradition! Here is our Haunted House for this year!

If the cookie is broken or the frosting is messy –  it makes it even better!

…and if you need an easier dessert, try this fun idea I found on FAMILY FUN!


I just love crafting around the holidays and making traditions! I think this year we will try Erika’s craft, Some Mummy Loves You. It’s an adorable card that can double as a cute home decoration.

    What a great idea to make gingerbread houses for Halloween! My husband and I wanted to make some last year during the Holidays but we ran out of time. Instead, we made them around St. Pat’s Day and turned them into a Leprechaun Trap! Just like your husband, he was skeptical at first but ended up having a great time!
