A great quick way to avoid crumbling ginger bread walls and still give the kids a chance to decorate little houses.

Ingredients (makes 6 houses)

  • 1 bag smarties (or m & m's)
  • 1 bag jelly babies
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar/hundreds and thousands
  • 1 pack nice biscuits or any other square biccy


  1. Mix up the icing sugar with water to make a paste
  2. Stick the jelly babies to your ground floor biscuit using the icing sugar
  3. Use the paste to stick the biscuits together to make roofs to the little houses
  4. Decorate the roof with smarties, sweets and hundreds and thousands

  • Perfect project for next Christmas


  • These Christmas Jelly Bean House look so good. I think all kids would love these at their parties and they sound easy to make too. :)


  • Love this as a Christmas activity! Everyone can use their own favourites and creativity!


  • This is great, I’m going to make these Xmas eve with my kids :)


  • It’s very smart to use the Nice biscuits they look so beautiful


  • These are amazing and so simple totally doing this!


  • These appear to be easier than gingerbread houses. If you don’t get gingerbread into exactly the right spot if can be a sticky disaster


  • I live this idea with cookies thanks for sharing


  • That is a cool way to get kids involved with decorating houses and not have to worry about crying because they have broken. They can still decorate with lollies and each have their own individual house. Really cool idea!


  • What a cool idea! We made a gingerbread house each..realistically we could never eat them all, so they ended up getting wasted. These are a better option..small, cute and ideal to eat.


  • these look super – imagining the smile on my son’s face when I make them x


  • Very colourful, tasty and pretty, thanks.


  • Great way to get children involved in Christmas Festivities and so much easier for little fingers to do too.


  • This sounds like a great idea for the kids to get involved in making houses to eat. Very creative


  • Nt our thing but thanks for sharing.
