Years ago, my brother-in-law and I made a gingerbread house, Christmas-style. If memory serves, it turned out pretty cute, but I haven't attempted to make another one since. However, having rounded up these haunted gingerbread (actually, most are chocolate) creations, a second attempt is in order, but for Halloween, of course. As I scoured the internets, I tried to find the best of the best, not necessarily 'how-tos', but—lucky for us—some are included.
From Martha, this cake and cookie combo is near perfection. (Oh, yeah, the house isn't actually ginger but made of chocolate cookie dough.)
Who doesn't love a mansard roof? The maker of this spooky house certainly does.
This one from Ultimate Gingerbread is a veritable mansion.
Oh Sugar's entry is a bit too 'cute' for my vampiric tastes, but that wrought iron is to die for. Its maker actually used a kit supplied by William Sonoma. No mention or link to the exact kit used, but . . .
this is another house created by a kit currently available through the retailer, AND it's no-bake. This one is chocolate too!
Another kit, this one from Wilton, can create these next two designs:
Love this gorgeous home made by Britta Blvd. It actually has an open back like a play house, complete with furnishings.
This one from Smarty Had a Party comes complete with a recipe and template.
