So, I am ashamed to admit but I spent almost an hour constructing and decorating this little house. It's super fun & relaxing. This house has a fence, and Santa, and a holly vine along the gutters, with a snow covered roof, and small orange candles in the windows. After making this house, I started wondering who decreed that gingerbread houses had to be sweet. Wouldn't it be interesting to make it salty? Like, out of Saltines and pretzels and cheese dip as glue instead of frosting? You could decorate with cheez-its for shingles, edemame for grass, etc. It would be a lot of fun. Or what if we used peanut butter instead of frosting as glue?
