1 1/4 cups sugar
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3 tablespoons mild molasses
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda


10 ounces vanilla or chocolate-flavored candy coating (almond bark)
Decorator sprinkles or coarsely crushed starlight mint candies
10 (8- to 10-inch) thin wooden skewers, if desired
Large red and green gumdrops, if desired


Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine sugar, butter, egg and molasses in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Press dough into ungreased 13x9-inch baking pan. Bake 18-22 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Cool completely. Cut with 1 1/2-inch cookie cutters.

Melt candy coating according to package directions. Dip top of each cookie into melted candy coating. Place onto waxed paper, coating-side up. Immediately sprinkle with decorator sprinkles or crushed candies. Let stand until coating is set.

Thread 3 decorated cookies onto each skewer, if desired. Top skewer with gumdrop or additional cookie, as desired.

Recipe Tip

- Cut gingerbread into 1- or 1 1/2-inch squares, triangles or diamonds.

- Keep candy coating warm while dipping cookies.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I have made this recipe 2 years in a row with my kids and it's awesome. The kids have a blast cutting out the shapes and decorating the cookies. My husband and I love to eat the leftover gingerbread plain with coffee. I've never been much of a fan of gingerbread before but this is really good.
