HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – Move over the gingerbread house, there’s a new food trend this year.
The “Charcuterie Chalet”, a crispy, salty and hearty little house, has been seen all over the internet.
It consists of different ingredients for sausage products, but all in the shape of a house.
Saskatoon blogger Jazzmine Woodard, also known on Instagram as the Dash of Jazz Blog, took on the challenge of making yourself.
“Honestly, the first time I did it it kind of fell flat so I had to make sure I had a nice solid base inside,” said Woodard.

There are no rules about what to have in your chalet. So you can get creative. This can cost as much or as little as you want.
While building it, work as if you were building a gingerbread house, but swap the ingredients.
Woodard recommends using cream cheese as a glue to hold your chalet together. She used a crispy crispbread for the walls and stacked several of them around the chalet for stability.
Her chalet was themed Texas and Saskatoon, so it had a lush green broccoli lawn, a pecan paved sidewalk, and a queso swimming pool in the back yard.
Other details include crushed red and green chips to make Christmas lights and sprigs of rosemary for trees and a wreath on the front door.
The entire project took about an hour and a half.
“It’s definitely weird but also creative and I think that’s a great way to sum up 2020 as a year,” she said.
