While the holiday season frequently sees an abundance of gingerbread houses made, these unconventional wagon desserts offer a divergent treat to make using gingerbread dough. The treats creatively turn the hard cookie into edible carts covered in chocolate, cookies and sprinkles.
These delicious wagon treats are a creative take on a gift basket, allowing bakers to creatively load the carts up with edibles and more treats. The cart can then also be consumed, making for a waste-free gift. The wagons are made from homemade gingerbread dough that is cut and glued into a box shape using melted chocolate and decorated accordingly with cookies, pretzels and colorful jimmy sprinkles for added design.
The wagons can then be filled up with more treats such as chocolates and candies and served to guests as gifts.
