How to make a Chocolate Christmas House

What you need:

  • chocolate and lots of it!!! But more specifically…
  • 4 blocks of 200g milk chocolate (I used Cadbury Dairy Milk)
  • 1 packet marshmallows
  • 3 packets white chocolate Fingers biscuits (again, I used the Cadbury brand)
  • 1 block of 200g white chocolate (I used Cadbury Dream)
  • Flake bars for the wood pile
  • 1 Cadbury chocolate roll for the chimney (they come in a pack… so you’ll just have to eat the rest!!)
  • Extra white and milk chocolate for melting
  • Icing sugar

How to assemble the Chocolate Christmas House:

  1. Start with a flat board and cover it in foil (I used a chopping board).
  2. Place a small container in the centre of the board to help hold up the chocolate walls.
  3. Spread a little melted milk chocolate along the two long ‘wall’ sides of the board.
  4. Place 1 full block on each side (using the container to help keep them standing up while the chocolate dries and sets the blocks in place).
  5. Cut the remaining two blocks and secure with extra melted chocolate to form the front and back of the house (you’ll have a few rows from each block leftover).
  6. Use melted white chocolate to ‘glue’ on the front white chocolate door and the marshmallow decorations around the door (cut the marshmallows in half so they sit nice and flat).
  7. To make the roof, cover two long rectangles with foil (I used plastic lids from containers but you could also use cardboard and cover it in foil too).
  8. Lay the two rectangles flat on a bench and spread melted white chocolate over the entire area of foil.
  9. Lay the chocolate finger biscuits on the melted chocolate and place into the fridge to set.
  10. Add a little melted chocolate to the top of the long walls and gently place the roof pieces in place (you might need to balance them a little bit!).
  11. Add some melted chocolate to one side of the roof and ‘stick on’ the chimney.
  12. Add melted chocolate to the top of the house and decorate with marshmallows.
  13. Add marshmallows to the front of the roof (I actually didn’t even need to use melted chocolate for this – I just squished them into place and they didn’t move).
  14. If you’d like extra chocolate Fingers around the edge of the house, simply spread over a little melted chocolate and stick them in place.
  15. Make little snowmen with marshmallows and melted white chocolate (I used little edible silver baubles for the eyes).
  16. Chop the Flake bars into small pieces and ‘glue’ them together with melted chocolate to resemble a stack of firewood.
  17. Dust the entire board and house lightly with icing sugar to resemble snow.

Tips & tricks for making a Chocolate Christmas House

  • make sure you’ve got plenty of melted chocolate to use (as this is what ‘sticks’ all of your pieces together).
  • if you’re making this chocolate house on a warm day, you’ll need to place the house into the fridge as you go so that the chocolate sets (I made it in a cool day and didn’t need to).
  • be patient as you wait for the chocolate to set – you’ll need to hold the pieces in place or balance them against one another until the melted chocolate has set them in place.
  • there’s a small plastic container inside my chocolate house – this helped to keep the walls in place while the chocolate sets. You can also use plastic containers on the outside while you’re making the house to keep everything stable – and then remove them when you’re finished.
  • you can use absolutely any type of chocolate or decorations you like!
