Last week here on the blog we featured a new Christmas Sweetscape, Cocoa & Cookies! The party was filled with all things cocoa & gingerbread. And if you didn’t get a chance to check out it you can do so here, we know you won’t want to miss it! If you’ve already checked it out you surely noticed we made one of our favorite easy holiday treats to share at that party, Gingerbread Cookie Bites!
Why do these rank on our favorites list? Because gingerbread is a staple of course but we don’t always want to make those cute little guys. And gingerbread can be a pretty strongly flavored cookie. We find that making them into these bite sizes portions made them even more enjoyable. Even our gingerbread doubters were snacking on these guys. Not only are they perfecting snackable and easy to make, they look so cute served in our red treat cups!
We told you guys they were simple, but you may not believe just how simple they are! For these guys we stuck to an easy peasy Krusteaz gingerbread cookie mix, and added 1/3 cup of our very own Reindeer Food sprinkle mix. It has the cutest little gingerbread sprinkles in it!
Here’s how to make them into those cute little Gingerbread cookie bites.
- Make gingerbread dough as instructed on box. Knead half of sprinkles into dough.
- Roll out dough onto a sheet of parchment paper. Sprinkle on the remaining sprinkles and roll with rolling pin once more to press the sprinkles in.
- Place rolled out dough on parchment paper in the fridge to chill for 10-15 minutes.
- Once chilled, use pizza cutter to cute into 1/2in -1in cubes. Place cubes on 2 parchment paper lined cookie sheets leaving a inch between each bite, and bake for 9-10minutes.
- Let cool and enjoy!
