Rochester Family Says, “Goodbye Gingerbread House…Hello Pop-Tart House”
It is 2020 - the year when you can take the ordinary and just try something different, because anything goes this year! My family put a new spin on a Christmas tradition and decided to try making Pop-Tart houses instead of Gingerbread houses. It was actually super easy (and I'll give you a few tips if you want to try it too). But now we need to know which Pop-Tart house is the best? Yep, we are looking for your votes!

Ready to try making a Pop-Tart house? Here are a few tips to make your experience the best:
- Get a few tubs of frosting
- Get a few boxes of Pop-Tarts. If you build a traditional house, you will need at least 3 packages so you have 6 total Pop-Tarts.
- For the roof, some individuals in our family thought that the flat side without frosting was a better option for decorating.
- Gather up all sorts of candy and have it handy for all the decorating fun. Here's a few things that we used:
- Reese's Peanut Butter Cups - pull out the candy wrapped in the green wrappers, dip the ends in chocolate (in the wrapper) and put a few together to make trees.
- Nerds - we used these for some of the paths, roofs, and also used as Christmas lights on the trees.
- Candy Corn
- SweetTarts - a few of our roofs are tiled with this candy
- Pretzels - make a great frame or can add additional details to make it look like a log cabin.
