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 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.

I couldn’t resist photographing these beautiful shaved almonds.

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!

I made this fun video for you so that you can see how fun and easy it is to build this adorable haunted house.

 

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.

Recipe Notes

Notes:

If the green grass icing is a bit runny, because you're adding liquid food coloring, put the icing in the fridge for 10 minutes so it firms up before you pipe the grass frosting. Otherwise, it'll look like green globs of icing.
