Halloween Peeps Houses

Unlike traditional gingerbread houses we make at Christmas, the Halloween Peeps Houses are made with yummy wafers.


  • Microwave safe bowl
  • Spoon
  • Plastic sandwich baggie
  • Scissors


  • Chocolate wafer cookies (18-20 wafers for 1 house)
  • Chocolate CandiQuick or brown candy melts
  • Halloween icing decorations or fondant decorations
  • Halloween Sprinkles
  • Ghost Peeps


  • Break apart the chocolate wafers. We used a total of 20 wafers for the Peeps House shown. 4 on each side, 4 in the back, and 8 on top for the roof.
  • Melt the CandiQuick or candy melts according to the instructions on the package (usually using a microwave safe bowl in 30 second intervals). We used CandiQuick (found in the baking aisle) but any kind of candy melts will do.
  • Put the melted candy into the corner of a sandwich baggie. This creates a homemade frosting bag for piping!
  • Cut a tiny piece of the corner off of the plastic baggie.
  • Pipe a little melted chocolate along the edges of the wafers to build up the sides and back of the Peeps House.
  • Assemble the roof by adding melted candy to the top of the house, then leaning wafers together, and finally adding more melted candies on top.
  • Add edible Halloween decorations on the top of the Peeps House
  • Decorate the front of the house with sprinkles and more decor.
  • Place a ghost Peep on inside


*Note: the melted candy will harden somewhat quickly, so be ready to assemble the houses quickly too!*
The CandiQuick can be reheated if it begins to harden.
