Spicy Hermit Bars

Ina Garten’s newest cookbook, Cooking for Jeffrey, is a real gem. I’ve been working my way though her cookbook for the past few months and these Spicy Hermit Bars are my favorite so far. They are perfect for the holidays and the recipe is simple, a bit time consuming, but definitely worth it!

I had to buy a few ingredients for this recipe that I didn’t already have in my pantry, such as crystallized ginger and molasses, but these were easy to find. My favorite part was the glaze, which is confectioners sugar and a few teaspoons of dark rum. Of course, I couldn’t let the rum go to waste, so I made Hot Buttered Rum cocktails with the leftover rum (score!).
