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.

Basically, if you can eat it, you can use luster dust on it! But here are my l favorite ways to use it:

- Royal Icing Cookies
- Fondant cakes
- Buttercream Cakes/Cupcakes (but buttercream must be cold when applied)
- Chocolate Covered anything (including cake pops)
- Splattered on brownies

Rose Gold, Gold and Black available @sweetsindeed.

My roommate hates glitter more than anything…but I can’t stop using it! Look how amazing our @sweetsindeed Edible Glitter Spray makes this cupcake look!

But I have agreed to only use glitter in my studio though. I feel like that is a fair compromise 🙌
