Forget about those hard, dry, cut out gingerbread cookies you are used to, and instead whip up a batch of these super easy, soft and chewy gingerbread bars! The combination of rich molasses and ginger with the creamy eggnog cream cheese frosting is simply divine!
Christmas baking is in full swing in our home, and my kids and I are having so much fun! The other day was so nice and sunny (albeit cold), and I took the opportunity to shoot a quick video for you all to show you how fun and easy these bars are to make. The recipe comes from my cookbook, Brownies, Blondies, and Bars (on sale now!). I added the eggnog frosting for a extra festive touch!
The bars are easy to make – taking photos and videos? Not so much, haha! You see, I have 5 small children and recently the baby and 2 year old have decided they need to make it their mission to have ALL of my attention, all the time. As in, they don’t want me to pay attention to anyone else. If the baby is on my lap, the 2 year old squeezes his way between us so that he is now the closest to me. The baby has now learned this trick himself, and loves to try it out whenever I am holding any of his siblings. It’s adorable and funny, and impossible to get anything done 😉
So basically, when the sun was shining and all the children were playing happily, I took advantage of of it and made a video. I know it’s not the best of the best, but don’t be too hard on me – I’m still learning. (If you missed my very first video, watch it here! And for the love of all that is delicious, make that recipe too!!)
