25 Days of Christmas Fun: Graham Cracker Gingerbread Houses on Milk Cartons!

Follow Time 2 Save Workshops Gingerbread Houses on Pinterest

Jamie here, if you have ever tried to make Gingerbread Houses with your kids – I hope you had fun… because when I did it – I turned into a terrible person.


Several years ago, with 4 boys aged 2-8, things were wildly unlike what I had imagined in my Martha-Stewart-Picture-Perfect plan.  The Gingerbread House kit I’d bought on clearance the year before would NOT stay together, and the boys were poking the walls down and caving the roof in trying to fit as much candy as possible onto it.  I went into control-freak mode, and I’m pretty sure I ended up finishing it by myself while they pouted off to another room.  FAIL!

Candy Cane “Buttons & Bows” Cookies Recipe!

Candy Cane Buttons & Bows Cookies

I’m not a huge fan of peppermint candy – to me it seems like a total waste of sugar – but I am REALLY fond of the Hershey’s Candy Cane Kisses.

I picked up a couple bags yesterday, but let’s be honest:  If I sit here and look at that candy I will be as fat as Santa by Christmas time.  So I made these fun cookies with them!



Being limited on time, I gladly went semi-homemade with the help of a bag of Betty Crocker Chocolate Chunk Cookie mix. (Also check out our “Lazy Girl’s Cookies in a Jar” idea if you’re strapped for time.)


Following the directions for the mix, I whipped up a batch of chocolate chunk dough and dropped it by plops onto a cookie sheet.  I’m a big fan of using tin foil on my cookie sheets – because if I haven’t mentioned it yet, I’m kinda lazy and I hate to wash dishes.





Once you pull the chocolate chunk cookies out of the oven – place a candy cane kiss into the top of each cookie. Push it in pretty deep, that way it can start melting into a pretty candy-cane puddle.  Every couple minutes, work your way around the cookie sheet gently pushing the tip of the kiss down to make sure it flattens out some more.  At the end it will look like a candy cane button. Cute!



While my second sheet of cookies was baking, inspiration struck!  I sliced the candy cane kisses down the middle and lay them on top the cookies with their points touching – like a candy cane bow!  Again – as they melt you’ll want to gently push them down a bit so they spread out a little.



Looking down at the sheet of cookies, I thought - Buttons & Bows!

For a delusional moment there, I thought about how extremely clever I was and how it would be even MORE awesome if I had brownie bites and I called them “button & bow brownie bites”.   But honestly – that might be just too much cuteness for one title.  :)   Of course, it was WAY too much cuteness for the teenagers at Youth Group last night who refused to refer to them as buttons and bows  – but instead eye-rollingly referred to them “Zippers and Snaps”, “Those zipper cookies” and other silliness.

That’s just teenagers for you.  They’ll stuff your awesome cookies in their ungrateful faces while making fun of you.  Gotta’ love ‘em ;)



Regardless – the chocolate and mint combo was spot-on.  They complimented each other really well and both my family and the kids at youth group asked for me to make more!

Packaging Note: The kisses were still a little gooey a few hours later – so unless you have plenty of time to let these sit so the kisses can re-harden, the gooey-ness might make it difficult to pack for gift-giving.
