How To Make

Start by coloring your coconut. Place your coconut in a sandwich bag and then add a few drop of green food coloring and mix to combine the color. If need be add more color.
Spread the coconut flakes out on a tray or plate and let it dry for an hour.
Now to assemble your graham cracker gingerbread house. Start by breaking 3 graham crackers in half. Spread some frosting on each side of one of the graham cracker squares
Take another square and place on the side, to create the wall. Then you will do the other side as well.
Next, add the back cracker to the base.
Then work on making the two edges with your frosting to create a triangle top.
To decorate you will add in some of your green coconut for the grass. Add your Peeps into the houses, and then sprinkle some jelly beans.
Variations To Recipe
A few different ways you can change up this Peeps cookie coop!
- Use melted chocolate in replace of frosting to piece your graham crackers together.
- Use edible grass in replace of coconut grass.
- Swap jelly beans with different candies.
- Swap the Easter chicks candy with any other candies you want. I just loved the look of the Peeps in the houses.
You can store these lil Peeps houses in an airtight container or leave out for a display piece. These are best eaten fresh. If you leave them out for decoration, you will want to throw away the houses and not eat them.
