As some of you may know, I love building houses. Earlier this year, I built the Family Guy House out of ooey gooey caramel popcorn. Now I can say that I ate a house!
In that build, I used green apple licorice for the house shingles, so I knew that I needed a new material to use for my scary haunted house design. Afterall, for a Halloween potluck, I need to bring my A game.
After a few structural tests and taste tests, I realized that shaved almonds would be the best option. Structurally, it's thin and easy to layer on top of each other.
Check out how these delicate roof shingles turned out. I used shaved almonds to mimic the layered effect of real roof shingles. So adorable, super tasty and easy to make. I had some left over shaved almonds, so I used them to make the fence too!
For the house shape, I used a house cookie cutter then I cut off the chimney on top. You can leave the chimney on, but without it I think the roof looks better and it's easier to add the almond roof shingles.
