This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Pop-Tarts.

Everyone’s catching the holiday spirit – including Pop-Tarts with their Limited Edition Gingerbread flavor. I was given the task of creating a recipe from them. But how do you take something delicious and make it more delicious? You add chocolate. And peanut butter. Oh, and sugar! I decided to call it Reindeer Food. It was sweet enough to make my kids fly, after all. Here’s how to make it:
