We love gingerbread at Christmas and have jazzed up our traditional cookies to hold a hidden sweetie surprise…
(Makes 6 depending on the size of your cutters.)
1 portion of gingerbread dough (You can find the delicious gingerbread recipe in my Gingerbread Tree post.)
Small sweets such as Smarties or Jelly Tots
200g of your favourite chocolate
A selection of cake decorating toppings such as sprinkles, hundreds and thousands, silver balls etc.
Festive cookie cutters. (I used a present and stocking shape as they suited the concept of being filled.)
- Pre-heat the oven 160C
- Follow the delicious gingerbread recipe to make your gingerbread dough.
- Roll out onto a lightly floured board about 1/2 cm thick.
- For each Hidden Surprise Gingerbread Cookie cut out three of you chosen shape.
- Remove the middle of one shape with a knife and place all 3 on a lined baking tray.
- Pop them…
