This year I planned on buying a gingerbread spice blend at the grocery store and quickly decided I’m Too Cheap For That!  Especially once I realized how quick and easy it is to whip up my own Homemade Gingerbread Spice Mix Recipe.

And it’s a good thing because I may be a tad bit obsessed with Gingerbread this holiday season.  I would’ve been spending a chunk of change on gingerbread spice with all of the recipes I will be making!

If you bake at all, these spices are probably already hanging out in your cupboard.  All you need is ground Ginger, Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Clove.  The best part about making your own spice blends is that you can personalize them to your tastes.

I adapted this Gingerbread Spice Blend Recipe from Raley’s Spice Mix.  I LOVE CINNAMON . . . so I added extra!  In fact, I will probably add even more cinnamon to my next batch.  Feel free to adjust these spice measurements to fit your tastes.

Okay so I went a little overboard with this photoshoot.  I was in the mood to take a ton of pictures {as you can see}.  Since this isn’t much of a recipe I figured I may as well fill this post with all of my purdy gingerbread spice pictures.

My mischevious gingerbread man was playing around in the spices!  That little trouble maker.

    What would I use the gingerbread spice in? Cookies? Hot Chocolate? I am curious. I have tried to make gingerbread cookies from scratch, but the recipes always have weird ingredients.

      I am about to post a gingerbread hot cocoa mix recipe. I also use it in my oatmeal and cereal. I mix it in with my coffee grounds to add flavor. It would make a great milkshake with vanilla ice cream. Pancakes, muffins, frosting, yogurt parfaits … just to name a few ideas 😀

  2. I love making things at home whenever I can too! Nice photos Nicole!

  3. Love the idea of putting this mix in cute glass jars to give as gifts!

  4. LOVE this! I’m a sucker for gingerbread spice!

  5. Marjorie Cooper says:

    Ohhhhhh I love this!!!! I will be making some for gifts too!!! I love the idea of attaching the ginger bread cookie cutter too! Thank-you for sharing!!!

  6. Pamela Myers says:

    I love gingerbread! This sounds wonderful. How much would you use of this mix in the hot cocoa recipe? 2-1/2 Tblsp?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Hi Pamela! Yes, 2-3 Tablespoons sounds about right for a large batch of cocoa mix. Depending on how much gingerbread flavor you prefer 🙂
