Kitschy kitchen cookies recipe

Ingredients:

  • Graham cracker squares (6 per oven)
  • Peanut butter candy melts
  • Chocolate candy melts
  • Kit Kat candy bars
  • Brown mini M&M candies
  • Brown plain M&M candies
  • Chocolate chips
  • Pretzel sticks
  • Pre-made mini cupcakes (optional)
  • Fruit roll-up (optional)

Directions:

  1. Heat about 2 ounces of peanut butter candy melts in a microwave-safe dish for 30 seconds. Stir until smooth. Start building the oven by attaching 3 graham cracker squares together with candy melt (the bottom and 2 sides.) Allow to cool and dry.
  2. Attach the fourth graham cracker on the side and 1 more on top. Allow to cool and dry.
  3. Using a small square or rectangle cookie cutter, carefully cut the oven window in the remaining graham cracker square. (You can heat the graham cracker in a microwave for about 15 seconds to soften it before cutting.)
  4. Insert a pre-made mini cupcake (optional) into the oven box shape, before adding candy melt to the door and sealing it shut. Allow to dry and cool.
  5. Make the oven door handle by putting a dab of candy melt on two chocolate chips and attach a pretzel stick. Allow to dry and cool.
  6. Cut 2 chocolate candy melts with a small circle cookie cutter to make the small burners for the stovetop.
  7. Attach the candy accessories to the graham cracker oven and stovetop with dabs of candy melt.
  8. If desired, make a mini hand towel from a strip of fruit roll-ups and hang it over the pretzel door handle.
