Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Merry Christmas everyone!

I made about 15 dozen of these cookies in the last week.

Chocolate meets gingerbread in this delicious combination.

I couldn’t wait to create this combination as soon as I made these

 

 

 

 

 

Gingerbread Spice Cookies

I’ve made many, many dozens gingerbread cookies this month and decided to make the chocolate gingerbread into Christmas Trees. I iced them with a green ribbon look and topped them with a tiny heart sprinkle.

I ended up making a single batch, then a double batch and am glad to say that I’m finished baking for at least a day!

It is Christmas after all and my oven needs a break!
