We used Wilton’s cookie house kit. It comes fully assembled and with plenty of icing. (Get one here.)
Spray the walls of the house with edible black spray paint (such as Wilton Color Mist).
Pipe spiderwebs onto the house using white icing.
Use 2 extra licorice slices from the roof for bat wings; attach to the house with a dot of black icing.
Use icing to attach 4 yellow Starburst Minis to the house for each window. Pipe lines with black icing.
Using a small serrated knife, trim a chocolate graham cracker into a coffin shape. Pipe icing around the edges, then sprinkle with black sanding sugar. Use white icing to make a bone. Attach to the house with icing.
Attach black-and-white candy sticks to the 4 seams of the house with icing.
Arrange black jelly beans around the bottom edge of the house.
Brush a marshmallow with corn syrup; roll in ground chocolate wafer cookies. Top with white cotton candy.
Thinly slice black licorice on the diagonal. Attach to the roof with icing.
Spread ground chocolate wafer cookies around the house. Make a path out of black sanding sugar.
Pipe melted black candy melts onto parchment in the shape of trees. Let set. Cut a slit in gumdrops and insert the trees.
