Cracker Cottages

Cracker Cottages

One for the kids, decorate crackers with icing pens and build your Christmas cracker cottages.

Ingredients
  • Rectangular biscuits or crackers
  • Buttercream
  • Chocolate/candy
  • Icing pens
  • Christmas ribbon

Method

  1. Firstly, decorate one side of 2 crackers however you like! We chose to follow a simple house design.
  2. Set aside and freeze for 15 minutes.
  3. Once the icing has become firm, take another cracker and pipe a thin line of buttercream along two opposing sides of the cracker.
  4. Take your two decorated crackers and position them on the buttercream line which will act like glue.
  5. Freeze for a further 15 minutes or until solid.
  6. Once the crackers houses have hardened, simply loop some Christmas ribbon through the house and tie a bow.
  7. Hang these on your Christmas tree for an extra special touch!
