Martha does it again with Chewy Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies, a simple cookie recipe that delivers flavour and texture in a big way.

I can’t say that I am a big fan of gingerbread cookies but my kids love them!   This cookie has a wonderful combination of fresh and ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, molasses, and my favourites, cocoa and semisweet chocolate chunks.

My favourite thing about baking gingerbread cookies is the sweet, spicy smell of ginger and cinnamon wafting throughout the house.  The aroma reminds me that Christmas (my favourite holiday!) is right around the corner.

Put away your rolling pin and cookie cutters!  No decorating required!  This isn’t your typical gingerbread cookie.  It is softer in texture and chewy.  In fact, they’re almost gooey with the addition of the chocolate chunks.

Rolling the cookies in sugar just prior to baking gives it a sweet crunch and a wonderful contrast to the moist, spicy interior.

This is a sophisticated gingerbread cookie with a spicy zing that adults will love.

    While I don’t LOVE gingerbread, I might be more of a fan if it had chocolate in it! ;)

  2. Marly Says:

    You know, this is a better use of the delicious dough too because it doesn’t require cutting them in little gingerbread men pieces. These look so delicious. I’m going to have to make these soon! Thanks for the yummy recipe…and this is the perfect time of year for it too!

    They look wonderful. I almost never see these with chocolate chunks though….nice addition. I don’t crave these cookies often, but fall usually brings on the need to bake some. ;)
