Chewy, flawlessly spiced Gingerbread Bars meet sweet, tasty Cream Cheddar Icing and it is a match intended to be! These are a standout amongst other occasion bars and once you try them you'll need to make them each Christmas season!

These bars are a pleasant compromise sort of gingerbread. They aren't excessively spiced, to a greater degree a smooth yet still flavorfully gingery bar. So children and grown-ups the same will adore them.

I make gingerbread with a great deal of ginger or molasses it very well may be excessively solid for my children yet these are flawless. Regardless it had enough ginger and molasses in them that I cherished them and it wasn't a lot for my children since they adored them the same amount of.

Another extraordinary thing about these is that they are so natural to make. I like bars since you don't need to heat up individual parts like treats, rather you simply spread everything into one skillet. Don't hesitate to include the same number of happy Christmas sprinkles as you'd like.
