The Traveling Sisterhood: Ninjabread Cookies, Ginger Truffles, and a Dessert Giveaway!

Ninjabread Cookies, Ginger Truffles, and a Dessert Giveaway!


Gingerbread isn't only for Christmastime!  

Krusteaz sent me two boxes of their Gingerbread Cookie mix and one of my readers will win the same!  I used a different recipe with each batch.  First up, Ninjabread Cookies!  Aren't these the coolest cookies ever?  I followed the cookie directions on the box, used these cookie cutters I purchased from Amazon, and used this recipe for Royal Icing (most delicious and easy icing in the world!) and I love how they turned out!  And they were sooo delicious.  

Their Gingerbread Cookie Mix combines the flavors of molasses, sweet cinnamon and ginger. There are directions on the back for either hard cookies (like the ones we made) or soft, chewy ones... which I'll try next time!

Next up, Ginger Truffles.  Oh. My. Goodness.  These were amazing!  I simply mixed the dough just as I would for the cookies but left out the egg, then refrigerated it for 20 minutes, took it out and rolled it into balls, froze again for 20 more minutes, and dipped in melted chocolate chips.  So divine!  I gifted half of them to one of my best friends and she raved about them.  


Krusteaz has a ton of other baking mixes, too--Pancake Mixes, Muffin and Crumb Cake Mixes, other Cookie Mixes, Cornbread Mixes, Dessert Bar Mixes, Bread Mixes, Pie Crust Mix, Flatbread Mixes, Gluten Free Mixes and many more!

Giveaway
One of my readers will receive 2 boxes of Gingerbread Cookie Mix from Krusteaz. Enter below by 5/30 at 11 pm anyone's time.  I'll choose a winner the next morning.  Check out our other giveaways, too--we have a lot of goodies this week!
