•Create a village of cozy gingerbread houses.
THE BLUEPRINT FOR SWEET SUCCESS
Baking your own gingerbread base is the classic way to begin, but it can be time-consuming. Make it easier by starting with a kit, like the A-frame version we used here.
Let it snow! Blanket the surface around your gingerbread house with shredded coconut. Add a sweet snowman outside using marshmallows decorated with tinted royal icing.
Search your pantry for building material inspiration. Grab a bag of pretzels or a box of cereal, or raid your secret candy stash. Get creative adding fun details to your edible edifice.
