Peeps Houses

Is this an Easter craft or an Easter treat? It's both! These Peeps Houses are almost too cute to eat. Whether you eat them or not, they're fun to make.

You'll need:

  • Peeps
  • Graham Crackers (I recommend name-brand for this- they're a little thicker and sturdier)
  • Cookie Icing or Frosting (I used some homemade butter cream frosting that I had left over from a cupcake project; you can also use purchased cookie icing, such as Wilton's).
  • Newspaper or parchment paper
  • Easter decor, such as Easter grass, candy eggs, etc.

Lay out the newspaper or parchment paper. Break the whole graham crackers in half. You'll need 3 whole crackers, broken into 6 halves, for each house. "Glue" the walls to the floor with icing, and set aside. Glue the two halves of the roof together and set aside (prop if necessary). As soon as the walls and roof dry separately (an hour or so), you can glue the roof onto the walls. Let dry and decorate as desired.

I thinned some frosting with a tiny bit of milk and piped it over the roof seams for melting snow. This spring has been so cold, I decided it wasn't much of a stretch.

The houses will "keep" pretty well for several days. They start to soften a little (think how a graham cracker loses its crunch if the wrapping is left open) over time, but my little taste testers thought they were fun and delicious.

The "grass" in this house is edible Easter grass that I found at Target.
