Is this an Easter craft or an Easter treat? It's both! These Peeps Houses are almost too cute to eat. Whether you eat them or not, they're fun to make.
- Graham Crackers (I recommend name-brand for this- they're a little thicker and sturdier)
- Cookie Icing or Frosting (I used some homemade butter cream frosting that I had left over from a cupcake project; something thick/firm is suggested. The original instructions said that Wilton's Cookie Icing would work, but one reader reported that it did not work for her).
- Newspaper or parchment paper
- Easter decor, such as Easter grass, candy eggs, etc.
Lay out the newspaper or parchment paper. Break the whole graham crackers in half. You'll need 3 whole crackers, broken into 6 halves, for each house. "Glue" the walls to the floor with icing, and set aside. Glue the two halves of the roof together and set aside (prop if necessary). As soon as the walls and roof dry separately (an hour or so), you can glue the roof onto the walls. Let dry and decorate as desired.
I thinned some frosting with a tiny bit of milk and piped it over the roof seams for melting snow. This spring has been so cold, I decided it wasn't much of a stretch.
The "grass" in this house is edible Easter grass that I found at Target.Peeps Houses may have been taken to some of these fun parties!
