Gingerbread Mickey Mouse Cookies Recipes

It’s that time of year when everyone is thinking about which cookie they are going to make for the cookie exchange. The Gingerbread Mickey Mouse cookies are perfect and will be the hit of the cookie exchange. 

Who doesn’t love gingerbread? Especially when shaped like their favorite Disney character? And Ghirardelli Chocolate to top it off. We always stop at the Ghirardelli store at Disney Minnie Mouse Lokai and it really is my new favorite accessory. You know, since we are all missing Disney Springs to get a free sample, lol. After all, it is the THE BEST!
