Valentine's Day Gingerbread House

A colorful candy house for Valentine's Day!
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: valentine's day


  • 6 graham crackers
  • Vanilla CandiQuik (or royal icing)
  • Vanilla frosting
  • Candy hearts
  • Other Valentine‚Äôs candy: we used purple sprinkles, Valentine M&Ms, and twisted marshmallows


  • Start by cutting the corners of two graham crackers to create points. TIP: use a sharp knife and gently pierce the graham cracker in the desired line a few times. If you start at the edge, it will crack in an undesirable way. If you pierce a line in the desired direction and work outwards towards the edge, you have a better chance of not breaking the graham cracker.
