Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo is getting into the Christmas spirit with a giant gingerbread house.
The 14 foot-tall structure took 1,700 lbs. of gingerbread to make.
It is built as a square, eight ft. long on each side, and it is located just inside the main entrance of the casino for visitors to enjoy.
A chef designed the house to include chocolate roof shingles, and chocolate nutcrackers --which took more than 800 lbs. of chocolate to create.
And the real candy used to decorate it all was made with 60 lbs. of cooked sugar.
