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

  • These are cute and so great for parties.
    Kids would be so amazed by them.


  • So cute, yet easy to do – thanks so much for sharing.


  • They’re adorable and so much cheaper than getting a store bought kit. The best part is that the kids can personalise them and they will be unique as no two will look exactly alike.


  • OMG I wish I had seen this last week. I bought a make your own house from coles. First time, kids wanted to give
    It a go. EPIC fail. Didn’t stay together, I dropped it still sticky all over the floor.


  • Awww, this is so cute and such a clever and simple way to create a version of the gingerbread house.


  • I tried a gingerbread house kit and failed miserably!


  • This is such a great idea. My 3yr old will love doing this. I will add this to our list of Christmas cooking.


  • 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
