25 Holiday Gingerbread Treats You Need To Make This Month

Gingerbread is one of my family’s very favorite holiday treats. We like it in any way, shape, or form. There is just something warm and comforting about the spices and molasses. Naturally, I tend to look for more gingerbread treats to make during the holidays. I could honestly add molasses and ginger to just about everything and call it good. And that’s just what these 25 gingerbread treats do. Friends, you need to make these today, tomorrow, all month even. Take a look and see which ones catch your eye the most. Me? I think I’ll take one of each.

1. Gingerbread Marshmallows

Hands down the best granola ever. Best made in double batches. This granola is loaded with spices, coconut, pecans and the best part? Diced candied ginger. Like I said — double batches.

If you love gingerbread, but are looking for a new way to enjoy those spicy, molasses-y flavors, I implore you to try this ice cream. It has a rich, complex gingery flavor from both fresh and dried ground ginger, as well as a good dose or molasses.
