Carving pumpkins is a fun and festive part of the holiday season, but now there is a new trend for Halloween that you must try: Building a haunted house out of cookies!

Much like the tradition of building gingerbread houses, there are now kits available for building your very own haunted house for Halloween. And at Trader Joe’s, you can find a Haunted House Chocolate Cookie Kit for just $7.99.

It comes with chocolate cookie pieces for the walls and roof, as well as decorative candy and cookie pieces to help you make your haunted house a home. The kit’s ready-to-use icing will make it easy to get creative with the fun decorative items, including a ghost-shaped cookie, candy bones, bats, candy mini beads and jellybeans in flavors from black currant to carrot, pumpkin and even radish. Spooky and delicious!

Don’t live near a Trader Joe’s? Don’t fear! You can find the kits on Amazon. However, these kits cost $23 if you purchase them online. But, if you are really hankering for a haunted house made entirely of cookies and candy, you may think it’s worth it. Plus, it will be a fun craft to do with kids.

You can also find other options online, such as the Scooby Doo Haunted House Gingerbread Kit ($19.99 on Amazon). It’s perfect for the Scooby fan in your life!


Or, try a Wilton Cookie House Kit for $29.99 — but order soon, stock is limited!
