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.

  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!

  5. Bark is one of those wonderful treats around this time of year that I LOVE to make and get as a gift heehee. How am I not surprised that this didn’t make it to the freezer? It looks ahmazing Liz! :D
