HONOLULU Family Easter Treat: Gingerbread Graham Cracker Houses

Why save “gingerbread” houses for Christmas? Add an edible nest (with eggs!) for an Easter surprise.

  • Graham crackers held together with royal icing—1/2 cup powdered sugar mixed with a teaspoon each of milk and corn syrup
  • Coconut shreds mixed with green food coloring
  • Rice Krispie treat nests
  • Jelly beans


Remember: Royal icing needs more time to dry in our humid weather. Twenty-four hours gave our houses a firm finish.


Tip: We found demitasse or espresso cups were the perfect molds for these tiny nests.
