Edible Haunted House

Here's a fun Halloween project for the whole family. Use your
imagination to decorate this house any way that you desire.
Watch out for ghouls and goblins, they may just devour your
masterpiece early!

~ Edible Haunted House ~

You will need:
2 containers (16 ounce) chocolate fudge frosting*
2 empty 1 qt. milk cartons, rinsed and dried
1 large tray covered with foil.
*You can use a thick homemade frosting instead.

pretzel sticks
graham crackers
black licorice and red twists
candy corn
Foil wrapped Halloween Candy
rice crackers
Orange Sprinkles
Colored icing for writing or decorating

Tape each milk carton closed at top. Tape milk
cartons together to make a house. Wrap with foil.
Attach firmly to the covered tray with tape. Frost
cartons with chocolate frosting. Frost the tray also
to use as the lawn. Decorate with the assorted treats!

Some ideas

*Sprinkle orange sugar on the roof of the house.
*Rice crackers make neat "attic" windows.
*graham crackers for windows and doors-highlight
with icing.
*pretzel stick window panes
*M&M "pathway stones" leading to the door.
*Candy corn "icicles" under the roof

After you have the house and pathway finished add
details to the lawn area. Foil wrapped candy is great
because you buy little mummies, ghosts or pumpkins
and place them on the pathway and around the house.
Buy from the bulk section of your grocery store to get
a really good selection without having to buy a lot of
one type of candy. After all the oohs and ahs have
subsided and Halloween is over, let the kids pick off
all the candy while they discuss what to do for next
year's Haunted House Spectacular!

make it look even more rotten. Add vodka if it is an adult party.
