Domek Baby Jagi (Polish Version of Gingerbread House)

Please watch the video for a visual of how to assemble this delicious work of art!

Prep time: 20-25 minutes

Cook time: 3-4 minutes

Materials:

  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • Vanilla extract 
  • Chocolate and Vanilla tea biscuits
  • 1 lb. farmer cheese
  • 1 green or red Jell-O
  • Sprinkles of your choice (optional)

Chocolate Topping Materials:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. water

Process:

  1. Make the Jell-O according the the box instructions. Pour into a container with a flat bottom (I used a rectangular Pyrex dish). Set aside until the Jell-O sets.
  2. In a medium sized mixing bowl add in the softened butter and powdered sugar. Mix until the mixture is smooth and silky, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add in the farmer cheese. Mix for several minutes until everything is incorporated and becomes one smooth mixture.
  4. Add in the vanilla and continue to mix until incorporated.
  5. Remove half of the mixture and place in a clean bowl.
  6. With the remaining mixture add in the cocoa powder. Mix until fully incorporated.
  7. On a large clean surface (a cookie sheet works great) place a rectangular piece of parchment paper. Size will depend on how big you will make it.
  8. Place 3 vanilla cookies horizontally across and continue to do this until you reach the bottom of the parchment sheet. I did 7 rows down.
  9. Spread the chocolate mixture over the cookies and smooth out.
  10. Taking the chocolate tea biscuits place them in the center vertically (again watch video for visual). I was able to do 5.
  11. Do the same on the left and right and make sure to put them on the edge of the surface.
  12. Pour half of the vanilla mixture over the middle section of cookies. Smooth out.
  13. Taking the Jell-O and place it in the center however you want. I made a long log but you can sprinkle the Jell-O in do whatever you feel is best.
  14. Pour the rest of the vanilla mixture over the top and spread over the cookies on the side leaving about 1/2 inch of space on the side.
  15. Going under the parchment paper fold up to the center to bring the sides of the cookies together and form a triangle.
  16. In a small sauce pot add in all the chocolate topping ingredients.
  17. Keeping the heat on medium stir constantly until the mixture is melted and together. DO NOT bring the mixture to a boil. Set aside and cool.
  18. Once cooled pour the mixture over the top of your house. Sprinkle with sprinkles and place in the fridge for a few hours to set.
  19. Slice and ENJOY!
