How to make a chocolate house
You will need:
1 board to build the house on (I use a wooden board);
8 x 80 gram bars of milk chocolate (the kind with blocks);
2 x large Kitkat bars
A quantity of royal icing
Sweets to decorate.
Step 1 – 2 Sets of double chocolate bars will form the front and back pieces of the house. Stand two bars side-by-side and using a bread knife, cut the bars with a sawing motion from the top right-hand corner of the first bar across the squares to the bottom of the third square down. Then cut the second bar from the top left-hand corner down to the bottom of the third square down. These cut bars will form the front of the house. Repeat for the back of the house.
Step 2 – Apply a line of royal icing to the bottom of each bar and along the inside of one of bars to make the front of the house. Attach the pieces to the wooden board as per the picture. If they are wobbly, use 2 tin cans to hold them in place while the royal icing dries.
Step 3 – Cut the top three lines of squares off four bars of chocolate to make the walls. Apply royal icing to the bottom of each piece and two both sides. Fit the sides to the house as per the picture. Then make the back piece of the house in the same manner as for Step 2 above. Allow the royal icing to set for an hour.
Step 4 – Carefully unwrap the KitKat bars and cut the roof pieces to size with a knife. Attach the roof to the house sides at an angle. Use royal icing to join the peak of the roof.
Step 5 – Use sweets to make windows and doors in your house.
Step 6 – cover the board with royal icing and make a garden using sweets and vermicelli as per the picture.
