Yield:
1 haunted house
Level:
Intermediate

Ingredients
  • 12 (7 1/2 by 4-inch) chocolate candy bars
  • 2 bags chocolate nonpareils
  • 2 bags candy corn
  • 2 bags licorice jelly beans
  • 4 bags gourmet jelly beans
  • 6 bars chocolate covered wafer candy (recommended: Kit Kat Bars)
  • 12 mini chocolate squares
  • Melted chocolate, for gluing
  • Candy, for decorating yard
Directions
  • Lay 1 (7 1/2 by 4-inch) chocolate bar flat on table, short side facing you.

  • With melted chocolate, hold another chocolate bar lengthwise and glue against long side of flat bar. Hold until set.

  • Repeat this process with 2 more chocolate bars until a 4-sided box is formed. Repeat to make 2 boxes total.

  • Stand boxes upright.

  • With melted chocolate, glue another chocolate bar between the 2 boxes to form the entranceway to the house.

  • The chocolate bar should be flush with the back of the chocolate boxes, creating a set-in entranceway.

  • Carefully cut another chocolate bar in 1/2 crosswise.

  • Glue at an angle to form a roof peak. Repeat with 2 more bars to form a total of three roof peaks. Don't worry about these being perfect. Imperfections add to the "scary" effect.

  • Glue 1 roof piece on top of each standing box.

  • Balance the third roof piece on top of the first 2 roof pieces, creating a roof over the entranceway.

  • Overlap nonpareil chocolate disks to create shingles on roof. Decorate the front eaves with candy corn and black jellybeans.

  • Stack mini chocolate squares and glue together to create base for chimney and gateposts. Cover in melted chocolate and roll in gourmet jellybeans to create a stone effect. Set aside to dry.

  • Once dry, attach the chimney to the roof and position the gateposts in front of the house, using more melted chocolate.

  • Break chocolate covered wafer candy apart into long pieces.

  • With melted chocolate, glue together to create fencing and window shutters.

  • Pieces may break, adding to the scary effect.

  • With a spoon, smear melted chocolate onto cardboard base to create pathway to front door.

  • Cover with gourmet jelly beans to create stone pathway effect.

  • Decorate yard with marshmallow pumpkins, ghosts, bats, and cats. Uses candy bars, orange slices and jelly worms to create graveyard.
