Gingersnap Bark

If you’re feeling rushed over the holidays to bake up something tasty, then this Gingersnap Bark is simple, easy and delicious!  This would be a perfect treat to give to teachers, neighbors, babysitters or bus drivers.  Fill up a little festive treat bag, tie on a pretty ribbon and you’ve got the perfect gift!

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.

When you’re planning your holiday baking list make sure you include this Gingersnap Bark on your list.  Whether it’s just for you or you’re giving it away as a gift, or at a cookie exchange, this is the perfect treat to whip up in a hurry and it looks so festive all wrapped up!


This recipe originally appeared on What’s Cooking With Ruthie (where I’m a monthly contributor), where it was called Gingerbread Bark.  I’ve since changed the name to Gingersnap Bark because I used Gingersnap cookies not Gingerbread.

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 […]

Cheesy Quinoa and Spinach Bake | A Sweet Baker

Cheesy Quinoa and Spinach Bake

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 […]

  1. Lovely Liz and so simple. Perfect for gifts, too, I think.

  2. I’ve been in the Christmas baking mood for weeks, too and I keep coming up with more and more recipes I want to try! Love this bark, Liz!

    I’m so glad to find someone else that loves chocolate and gingersnaps together…I’ve been told that it’s strange. This is a great idea, Liz, and it looks delicious!

  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
