How cute is this thing? I mean really. We’ve bought cookie houses from Trader Joe’s before around the holidays. This was our first Halloween version and we loved it.
As always, the kit comes complete. Everything you see in the photo (minus the brown rice and sprinkles because i felt the plate was too bare) was included. All the cookies, frostings and candies were all included and was easy enough that my 5 year old did the majority of it.
Things I love about this kit:
- The cookies taste fresh. Yes, we eat our houses :X
- The frosting isn’t overly dyed. I had expected the black frosting to be a sugar base and heavily tinted but it is a chocolate base. Also really, really good.
- They are ample with the candies. There was plenty that we could easily cover the house and base and there was some to spare for obvious eating while we decorate.
- It all stuck together really well. We’ve had kits in the past where the walls of the house are falling in while you decorate and this one stuck together incredibly well.
If your family loves cookies and has about 3o minutes to spare, I would highly highly recommend this kit from Trader Joe’s. We had a great time doing it!
