Use broccoli florets to embellish the hat. Press black olives and grape tomato halves in place for the eyes and cheeks. Finish with a chive or scallion mouth and a bell pepper scarf.

A Healthy Gingerbread House

Give your traditional gingerbread house an extreme makeover by swapping the candy for more wholesome ingredients. To make the house, trim graham cracker walls and a roof with a serrated knife, then join them with peanut butter. (To pipe it, spoon several tablespoons of peanut butter into a plastic bag and snip off a corner.) Decorate the house with healthy snacks, such as cereal, nuts, and dried fruit, attached with more peanut butter. Can't use nut products? Substitute cream cheese for a binder.
