Lined up your candies on Parchment paper and bake @ 325 F degrees for 10 minutes.
Apply non-stick spray liberally to each cutter.
Remove from oven.
Immediately and firmly, press cutters into melted peppermints.
Let cool 3 to 4 minutes. Gently lift up candy piece and press cutters completely through.
Continue gently pressing the candy until free from cutter. Lay finished pieces flat on pan to cool.
You will need two candy pieces from each of the three cutters for each house.
Now pipe royal icing onto edges of candy pieces.
As this was my first time constructing a house..it was little tricky, until I laid it on its side like so.
When the icing set, I added the final back piece. There, easy peasy. (I’ve been waiting to say that!)
For the chimney, I used a piece of candy cane. Royal icing piped on top makes for some sweet “smoke”. I attached snowflake sprinkles to the top of the roof. Holly sprinkles and silver dragees were also added for a festive touch along with sugar sprinkled on for ‘snow’. I also made a tiny little peppermint heart using the same method as I did with the house.
That’s it! Cute as can be, don’t cha think?
Wishing You All a Blessed Christmas
