Materials:

  • Graham Crackers
  • Candy Melts
  • Peeps
  • Chocolate Robin Eggs
  • Sprinkles

Directions:

  • Take three graham crackers and break them in half until you have 6 squares.
  • Following the directions on the candy melts package, melt some candy. This will be the glue for your house. It might be helpful to spoon some of the melted candy into a zip lock bag and then snip the corner so that you can pipe the “glue” onto the graham crackers.
  • To make your house, start by piping the candy melts glue along sides of the graham crackers to create a box with a bottom and three sides. Leave the top and one side open.
  • Now create the roof. Slant two graham cracker squares on the top of the box and use your candy melts glue to connect them.
  • Decorate your house with sprinkles and candy.
  • Nestle your Peep inside of your house.
