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.

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