Sweet Nutcracker Chow

Son of a Nutcracker! We all know nutcrackers feed on nuts. Duh! But did you know they also love gingerbread? Or at least that’s what we’re assuming by the looks of our rapidly disappearing Nutcracker Chow made with gingerbread infused cookie butter. The Nutcrackers at our Nutcracker Holiday Tea couldn’t get enough of the stuff and we’re pretty sure all of your holiday guests will feel the same. So get crackin and whip up a batch of your own! Sugar Fairy Approved!
