How To Make A Halloween Candy Haunted House
We decided to prepare for the spookiest holiday of the year by creating a Halloween Haunted House made from Hershey’s Halloween candy! First we gathered our raw materials- a big flat plate and our bags of candy. Hershey’s has a lot of special Halloween candy that we had access to like Peppermint York Patties in the shape of pumpkins, Reese’s Peanut Butter Pumpkins, Cadbury Screme Eggs with a neon green streak in them, Reese’s Peanut Butter minis, orange Kit Kats, and more.
We assembled our Candy Halloween Haunted House in several different ways. Everyone had their own ideas and we wanted to give them all a whirl and see which we liked best. We all agreed that the orange Kit Kats made wonderful building blocks so we broke the Kit Kats into logs and started stacking them. We tried them as straight up stacks for ease. However, we discovered that just like real building blocks they were much more sturdy if we interlocked them. To accomplish this, we chopped some kit kat “logs” in half.
Next, we started on a roof for our candy haunted house. We all agreed that the Hershey’s mini bars made the perfect roofing material. Some of us wanted a flat roof, some wanted a pointed roof, some wanted pointed and flat. We tried several variations. Some people wanted to add Hershey’s Kisses for a chimney. Some wanted to run the kisses down the middle of the flat roof as a peak. Others just wanted to eat the Hershey’s Kisses- which were pumpkin spice Kisses, by the way. My son said in utter amazement, “Mom, these taste like pumpkin pie”! “That’s the idea,” I told him while giggling to myself.
To complete our candy draft we added more house decor and yard decor. We used Rolos in fall color wrappings to make the columns for the doorway of the candy haunted house. Next, we used pieces of a Hershey’s chocolate bar alternated with Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups minis as a cute little walkway up to the house. We also cut the top off of a Cadbury egg to use it as a witch’s cauldron and my daughter make a stirring stick for it with a slice of a Kit Kat. Finally, we used sour apple Jolly Rancher Lollipops as our trees and stuck them in peanut butter cups to make them stand up.

I’m with Christy, this is a great idea, very creative. The only thing is it wouldn’t be the kids eating the candy, it would me, with no shame either :)!
I’m a Halloween fan only for the treats…forget the costumes and that other stuff, bring on the candy, LOL.
