Celebrate the holidays with Chocolate Dipped Mickey Gingerbread cookies.
My Thanksgiving decorations are down and my Christmas decorations are up and I am officially in full holiday spirit. My holiday baking list is made, Christmas music is playing and we have drawn names to see who we get to buy a holiday gift for. Christmas time is one of my favorite because it is so full of tradition. We have a long list of items that we do every holiday that is special because we do it every year. Items like cutting down our Christmas tree, having the Elf on the Shelf visit, seeing the Christmas carol play and baking our favorite Christmas cookies. These Chocolate Dipped Mickey Gingerbread cookies are the perfect holiday treat for any Disney lover!
