The Best Gingerbread House Frosting (Only 3 Ingredients)

gingerbread-house-frosting-final

One of our traditions as a family every year is to make gingerbread houses. The kids have so much fun decorating the houses themselves. Rather than purchasing a gingerbread house kit, I purchase graham crackers and make this Gingerbread House Frosting below that is seriously the best frosting that holds the graham crackers together and keeps the candy on the houses. Plus, it’s only 3 ingredients! Since holiday candy can be expensive if you purchase a lot of different decorating options for the gingerbread houses, the way I save some money is to choose and purchase a few holiday candies and then use leftover candy from Halloween or other holidays.
