White Chocolate Gingerbread Bars

 

These are one of my favorite Christmas treats to bake, and it packs well to give as gifts! Last Christmas I found this recipe for White Chocolate Gingerbread Bars (originally adapted from Martha Stewart), and couldn’t wait to try them out. They were perfect, and such a nice different treat to bake.

 

I had everything except molasses in my pantry, so I substituted with honey and they turned out just the way I would have expected, however they might be a wee bit richer with molasses. Either way, I’m pretty sure you’ll love with the results, and am betting you’ll want to add them to your gotta-make-each-year list too. They also pack easily, so they’re perfect if you’re getting recipes ready to share this Christmas season! (By the way, with the amount of butter these babies call for I definitely would have figured they were a Paula Deen recipe rather than from Martha Stewart, but apparently butter makes things better for everyone.  I’m pretty sure I’ve never made another recipe that called for this amount of butter, but I’m sure that’s why they’re so good!) 

White Chocolate Gingerbread Bars

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups + 1 tbsp flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 2 1/2 sticks butter
  • 1 1/4 cups light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cups + 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 large eggs + 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 1/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 cup molasses (I substituted with honey)
  • 10 oz, white chocolate chips

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and spray 17x12" baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Mix together butter, brown sugar and white sugar with a mixer until fluffy.
  3. Add eggs and yolk, 1 at a time and mix well.
  4. Add in vanilla and molasses (or honey if substituting). Reduce mixing speed to low.
  5. In separate bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, salt and spices.
  6. Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating just until combined.
  7. Pour into prepared pan and bake 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool in pan on wire racks.
  8. Enjoy!

Gold Box Deal: Lowest Price On Mohu TV Antenna

Screen Shot 2014-11-11 at 7.01.55 AM

Amazon has a great Gold Box Deal of the Day today if you’ve been considering giving up cable! Get the new Mohu Leaf 50 Amplified Indoor Antenna for $49, which is by far the lowest price it’s ever been at, and it ships free with Amazon Prime or Free Super Saver Shipping. Here are a few product features:

 

  • 50-mile range to access Over-the-Air TV channels without a cable or satellite subscription (NOTE: Enables access to free channels only – does not enable access to paid channels such as such as ESPN/Fox News)
  • CleanPeak Filter technology filters out cellular and FM signals, resulting in a clearer picture and allowing access to more channels
  • Multi-directional and Reversible: No “pointing” needed and comes with included 16 ft. high performance cable

  • Comes with 1 Year warranty

I actually met some of the folks who work at Mohu at a recent conference, and I was pretty impressed with this product. They promise that it’s incredibly easy to install, and works much better than old fashioned rabbit ears do. It’s only on sale today (normally priced between $69 and $89), so this is a great way to save while it lasts!   Here’s a video that shows how simple it is to setup:

Head on over HERE to check it out!  You can also get the regular Mohu Leaf (not 50 Amplified) for just $39.99 as well. If anyone knows the difference and can explain the benefits of the higher end one, I’d love to hear them!
