A Cheese And Cracker Chalet Is What Your Holiday Happy Hour Needs

The truth is, when most people think of gingerbread houses, they think of sweet and sugary gingerbread held together with frosting.

However, not everyone wants a sweet holiday house to make each year. Many of our fellow savory lovers are finally going to have their chance for a treat just for them.

These savory gingerbread houses are cheesy, crunchy, and everything we could have asked for when it comes to the most magical time of the year.

These houses are built with some amazing flavors.

Just like traditional gingerbread houses, these can be as creative and customizable as you want.

It's helpful to start with crackers and cheese slices to help build the gingerbread walls, and then added fun things like pretzels and veggies to give it a little more charm.

It may also be fun to garnish your house with salami, prosciutto, and even top it off with herbs.

Make these creations uniquely your own.

The possibilities are endless, and there are just too many ways to approach making your savory gingerbread house.

With veggies that can be used for making wreaths, melted cheese that can even act as snow, and pretzel doors, this is something that the whole family can enjoy.

Every family member can choose whether they want to go sweet or savory this year, and everyone will have the chance to dig in.

Your Instagram will be poppin'.

These houses aren't just delicious, they're also gorgeous. There's something just so cozy and seasonal about these savory homes that will have your loved ones doting and the compliments rolling in.

This is a great idea for those looking for a great indoor project that they can share with others. We're not sure if it'd be more fun to make them or take stunning pictures of them.

Don't be afraid to get started.

Making these houses may be a little intimidating at first, but they're something anyone can create.

Regardless of whether you use cheese whisps, saltines, or even potato chips, there's no going wrong with what sounds delicious to you.
