We used Wilton’s cookie house kit. It comes fully assembled and with plenty of icing. (Get one here.)

WALLS

Spray the walls of the house with edible black spray paint (such as Wilton Color Mist).

COBWEBS

Pipe spiderwebs onto the house using white icing.

BAT

Use 2 extra licorice slices from the roof for bat wings; attach to the house with a dot of black icing.

WINDOWS

Use icing to attach 4 yellow Starburst Minis to the house for each window. Pipe lines with black icing.

DOOR

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.

PILLARS

Attach black-and-white candy sticks to the 4 seams of the house with icing.

EDGING

Arrange black jelly beans around the bottom edge of the house.

CHIMNEY

Brush a marshmallow with corn syrup; roll in ground chocolate wafer cookies. Top with white cotton candy.

ROOF

Thinly slice black licorice on the diagonal. Attach to the roof with icing.

GROUND

Spread ground chocolate wafer cookies around the house. Make a path out of black sanding sugar.

TREES

Pipe melted black candy melts onto parchment in the shape of trees. Let set. Cut a slit in gumdrops and insert the trees.
