Easy Bake Gingerbread Cookies with Molasses and Icing

Looking to step up your Cookie Swap game this year?! Well, look no further, because I have the perfect cookie for you. The Cookie Swap is BY FAR my favorite holiday tradition. Mostly because it is one of the few times a year it’s socially appropriate to eat a ridiculous amount of cookies and not feel guilty about it.

But I also like seeing the variety that a Cookie Swap brings. Everyone tries to go above and beyond to create an original and delicious cookie. I am no different. Every year I try to come up with something better and more creative than the year before.

This year’s cookie inspiration did not come from Pinterest or Martha Stewart Magazine. It actually came when I went to get a snack in the fridge. My roommate had gotten a Caramel Gingerbread Chocolate Bar from Trader Joe’s and it just hit me.

Best Cookies - Gingerbread with Chocolare and Caramel

The chocolate and caramel paired so well with the gingerbread I found myself wondering why I hadn’t thought about this before?! So I went straight to my kitchen and started baking. This cookie is so soft and chewy (which is my favorite kind of cookie) and the flavor is INSANE. Then you add the crunch of the chocolate chunks and the sweetness of the caramel – it’s GAME OVER.

POV: My mental state at the moment.

Feeling a lootttt like a snowman trying to survive a winter in Southern CA. And it's not going very well. ⛄️

(If you want to see how well you are holding up, check out the list in my "OOTO" highlights" and see how many resonate).

I have talked to a lot of people in the last few weeks and it seems everyone is feeling off or unsettled or just freaking exhausted this winter. So I if you are feeling this way too, I want you to know that you are not alone.

For me, I have decided to take a little break. No social media or emails or working on lesson plans or budgets until January 2022. Because I just have nothing left.

So I hope everyone has a good end of their year (and I hope you spend it making ALL THE COOKIES).

Love and Sprinkles ❤️
