Australians are once again shunning traditional ginger-bread houses in favour of KitKat’s chocolate Kabins this Christmas.
The Kabins are made using slabs of KitKat before being decorated with lollies and chocolate freckles, similar to the traditional dish.
Creative chocoholics can order the kits, which weigh 2.5 kilos each, for just $45 but they should get in quick if they want them before Christmas.

The chocolate houses come with a ten-step instruction sheet making it easy for crafters
Each kit contains five milk chocolate KitKat blocks, tow of the gold chocolate blocks and of course decorations.
Home artists can decorate using white chocolate melts, milk chocolate melts, Smarties, freckles and Allen’s raspberries which come in the kit.
Santa is also delivered with the chocolate chalets, adding extra seasonal cheer to the delicious table centerpiece.
The kits also come with a 10-step instruction kit – a must for busy parents who want the edible craft to be assembled without causing household chaos.
This is the second year the popular chocolate brand has released the gingerbread house inspired treats.
But it is the first time they have been available to everyone – last year they were only available for pickup in the Melbourne and Sydney CBD.

People were excited to show off their KitKat creations last year
Many were relieved to have an option other than the traditional ginger bread to try
Happy customers have been sharing their creations on Instagram, with chocolate houses appearing on festive dining tables across the country.
Photos of the cabins have drawn dozens of delighted responses.
‘This is far more to my taste than gingerbread!’ one woman wrote.
‘Nice touch with the raspberries, it’s awesome! Take a bow,’ added another.
The kits come with building suggestions but the design is up to each artist

A third called the idea ‘amazing’ while a fourth said: ‘So clever.’
Another was so taken with the concept, she dreamed of creating a life-size version.
‘I would love to live in that cabin!’ the woman wrote.
‘I don’t know how long I would last, I’d probably be homeless after I ate my way through the walls.’
