Allergy-Free Gingerbread House

Original Post  12/4/14

Alright food allergy peeps, I know you're gonna love this one!

One of the top questions at our Facebook page during the holidays is how to do gingerbread houses with food allergies. 

Well take a look, we've got you covered! 

We made this adorable gingergbread house using Honey Maid crackers. For real. How adorable is that?! 

With a sharp knife I was able to cut a few triangles for the roof. And it's not hard to find safe candy like Skittle, marshmallows, Starburts, and candy canes to decorate.

The "glue" recipe below is awesome, and the house stayed together amazingly well. I could even pick it up with one hand once it dried.

The great thing about this inexpensive way to make gingerbread houses is that the kids can make two, one to eat and one to decorate! We even invite friends over to join in.

I don't believe the Gingerbread Honey Maid is available anymore so just use regular graham crackers. Check labels for yourself, of course.

Icing Recipe
1 1/2 cup powder sugar
4 teaspoons of water

Use an actual measuring spoon. If it's too thick after 4 teaspoons of water, add 1/4 teaspoon at a time until you reach glue-like consistency. You don't want it too thin.

Dairy-Free Candy
Candy Canes
Mini Marshmallows

Please check labels for yourself.

I had no idea that they made Graham crackers especially cut for gingerbread house! Looks like fun! We will be searching for these on our next grocery trip.
