All you need is some meltable chocolate, pretzel rods, graham crackers and decorations!
Ginger Bread Log Cabin Without the Ginger Bread
I personally am not a big fan of the store bought ginger bread house kits. I understand the pieces for the home are more for looks then edible but I want both! The store bought stuff is made to not break but tastes like cardboard while the yummy ginger bread is hard to work with. So why not a log cabin for Santa to visit with melted cholate?
Follow directions on packaging for melting (microwave at 30 second intervals and stir in between usually). Then I pipe it into an icing bag and cut of the tip.
The chocolate melts within a few minutes and makes for an excellent mortar.
I cut some of the pretzel rods in order to make a square and alternate larger and smaller pieces. I used milk chocolate for this step to match the color of the rods.
Then I held the pretzel rods for the roof for a minute until the chocolate was almost hardened.
Placed some graham crackers for the roof and covered it all with white chocolate for a snow covered home.
Only part left now is to decorate with your favorite sprinkles or candy and add a little candy Santa at the front door with some presents for the Pretzel family!
Sturdy and tasty!
