What you can make with leftover gingerbread nuts

Santa has left the country, but bags of gingerbread nuts are still in the cupboards and you can make the most delicious stuff out of it!

The  wonderful Santa’s night is here and it means that huge quantities of gingerbread nuts, spiced nuts, chocolate letters and almond spiced gingerbread have been eaten. But what to do with all the leftovers? You  might think ‘just eat it al’ the way it is, but there are also nice recipes to spice up the remaining Santa delicacies.


Gingernut pie with chocolate milk

Gingernut pie

What do you need?

  • 400 grams gingerbread nuts

  • 120 grams melted butter

  • 200 ml milk

  • 250 grams marshmallows

  • 1 spoonful cocoa powder

  • 600 ml whipped cream

  • 1 spoonful sugar

  • Chocolate covered gingerbread nuts

How do you make this pie?

  1. Use a quiche baking tin with a separate bottom piece of 28 centimeter and grease it.

  2. Preheat the oven at 170 C and crumble the gingerbread nuts with a food processor.

  3. Add the crumbs to the melted butter and mix it until it turns into a dark mass.

  4. Pack the crumbs tightly together in the baking tin on the bottom piece and half way the sides. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes, this will make the bottom somewhat less moist.

  5. Mix the cocoa powder and milk into chocolate milk and add the marshmallows. Melt the marshmallows on a low fire and let the liquid cool down for approximately 60 minutes.

  6. Whip 300 ml whipped cream without sugar until you get a firm mass and mix it with the chocolate milk.

  7. Fill the baking tin and let it cool for a half hour in the fridge.

  8. In the  meantime you whip the remaining whipped cream with a spoonful sugar until it has stiffened up.

  9. Spread the whipped cream on the top of the pie, crumble a few gingerbread nuts and put it as a final topping over the whipped cream.
