Gingerbread Chocolate Chip Bars

Gingerbread Chocolate Chip Bars
It’s not Christmas yet so we’re still pumping out great holiday dessert recipes!

And this is an easy one, once again!

It starts with 1 box of Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cake/Cookie Mix and 1 pouch of Betty Crocker Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix (or double chocolate chip cookie mix).

I am not sure if another brand would work – you could definitely give it a try.

Simple steps – mix the gingerbread dough and mix the cookie dough separately and combine them in 1 pan. Yum.
