Hi friends! Happy December! I’ve been dreaming of gingerbread themed things for a while now and I’m excited to share this recipe with you. One of the best ways to get into the Christmas spirit! I like to create my way into the Christmas spirit. No Christmas music for me. When you have to listen to it at work for 8 hours a day then it’s not exactly a good time! What’s your favorite way to get into the Christmas mood?! Let me know! Give me some fun ideas!
For the next few weeks we’re going full on Christmas recipes here at Create N Plate so prepare yourselves! I need to kick it into gear here and plan on dedicating two full days in the near future to making a ton of recipes to get us through the month before things get too busy. Get ready!
So on to this recipe; I made the little gingerbread bits out of the gingerbread cookies that I made last year. You could use the leftover dough to snack on or save for future blizzards. The possibilities are endless! Then I added some sweet and sugary banana ice cream and magic happened. So great. Try it out and let me know how it goes!
