Don't Wait for Gingerbread — You Can Now Build Halloween Cookie Houses
These are some seriously spooky treats.
The holiday season calls for food, drinks, and fun activities to get you in the holiday spirit. But while building and decorating gingerbread houses is super fun around Christmas — and of course, picking away at the gummies and candy canes you're supposed to be using to make your masterpiece — they're not the only holiday-themed cookie houses you can build this year.
Now there are Halloween cookie houses, which are spooky, delicious, and oh-so-festive for fall. You can buy these kits online. Wilton, a bakeware company, sells pre-assembled and non-assembled chocolate cookie house kits through sellers like Amazon.
For example, they offer the Ready-To-Decorate Halloween Chocolate Cookie House, which is all about decoration, as it comes assembled with candies, yellow fondant, purple and gray ready-to-use frostings, decorating bags, tips and instructions. You can let your imagination and artistic abilities run wild. Another one? Halloween Pre-Baked Cookie House Kit, which is also easy to decorate right our of the box when the ghostly vibes hit you.
You can also shop at Target, which has a great selection of these baked abodes, too. There's a Hyde & EEK! Boutique™ collection, which has Hyde Manor House Cookie (super affordable at $9.99), Chocolate Halloween Graveyard Cookie (also for $9.99), or even better, the Chocolate Halloween House Mini House Cookie, which is a small cottage that's still super cute (and spooky) for a mere $2.99. That's a great budget pick for neighborhood kids or a classroom project.
