Guiltfree Gingerbread

I absolutely adore Christmas! My favourite part of Christmas is watching people open the presents I give them! I love to get creative in my wrapping and have been known to hide presents within presents.

This year I am definitely going to be adding in some edible gifts like my Christmas Granola and Giant Chocolate Buttons but this Guiltfree Gingerbread will definitely be top of the list! Change it up by using whatever cutters you have on hand! I love making loads of different sized stars as they look great stacked up and presented!
