Gingersnap Bark | A Sweet Baker

Even though it’s only the beginning of December I’ve been in the Christmas baking mood for a few weeks now!  I’ve already made Reese’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Bars Coffee and Bailey’s Irish Cream FudgePeppermint Chocolate Biscotti and Icebox Cookies, which are all in the freezer to enjoy over the holidays!  I’ve also made  Cranberry White Chocolate Shortbread Cookies but they didn’t even make it to the freezer!

This Gingersnap Bark also didn’t make it to the freezer in my house!  First of all, it doesn’t make a big batch (but you can double it if you want one) and second, it was just too good that we ate it over the course of the week and the kids took it in their lunches.

The key to getting this Gingersnap Bark perfect is to buy good quality chocolate and good quality gingersnaps.  That’s the only two ingredients in this bark so you want to have the best.

Homemade Coconut Larabars | A Sweet Baker

Homemade Coconut Larabars

Lately I’ve been trying to eat healthy and I’m trying to avoid any processed food. It’s actually not that hard but when it comes to having a little sweet treat there’s always added sugar and things I can’t pronounce. When I first tasted Larabars I loved them but at $1.69 each I knew I had […]

A few years ago my husband made a tri-color quinoa dish that was so tasty.  One layer was red (from sundried tomatoes), another layer was green (from pesto), and the final layer was light brown (from plain quinoa).  It was a time consuming dish to layer all the ingredients but the final dish was so […]

Pineapple Cupcakes with Strawberry Mousse Frosting

Sunday was my Dad’s birthday and to celebrate I made these Pineapple Cupcakes with Strawberry Mousse Frosting.  They were so moist and flavorful and the mousse frosting was the perfect addition. My family and I are not big frosting/icing fans so using this mousse as the frosting was the perfect solution.  I don’t know why […]

Just hearing the word ‘morning’ makes me cringe. I am not a morning person and I hate getting up to an alarm.  Making everyone breakfast during the week is the last thing on my mind when I wake up.  I just want to be left alone to get ready for work and get the kids […]

  4. What a quick and delicious homemade gift! This bark would look so pretty in a gift bag or care package! Spicy crunchy ginger snaps with smooth creamy chocolate is a great combination. Thanks!
