Chocolate Ginger Cookies. What is more delicious than the smell of warm cookies? Covered with rich and creamy chocolate coating with a taste of ginger that gives the cookies an extra flavor. Thick, soft and chewy cookies. 

Chocolate Ginger Cookies

Ingredients Chocolate Ginger Cookies

  • Quality semisweet chocolate weighing 7 ounces (70% dark)
  • 1 cup of white whole-wheat flour
  • 1 tablespoon of all-purpose flour in addition to ½  cup.
  • 1 tablespoon Dutch-process cocoa powder that hasn’t been sweetened
  • Ground ginger, 1¼ tablespoons
  • Cinnamon powder, 1 teaspoon
  • ⅛ teaspoon of clove powder
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, 
  • 1 freshly grated teaspoon of nutmeg (1 stick)
  • fresh ginger, grated 1 tablespoon
  • packed with half a cup of dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsulphured molasses (not blackstrap)
  • One and a half teaspoons of baking soda
  • Sugar crystals, ¼ cup

Instructions Chocolate Ginger Cookies

Step 1 

  • Roughly chop the chocolate into ¼-inch chunks (I like to use a serrated knife for maximum chunkiness). 
  • Sift the cocoa powder, cinnamon,  ground ginger, cloves, and nutmeg into medium-sized bowl along with the white whole wheat flour and all-purpose flour. (The chocolate will be lumpy if you skip the sifting. The additional step is worthwhile!)

Step 2:

  • For about 4 minutes, beat together the butter and grated ginger in a large mixing bowl or the bowl of an electric mixer with the paddle attachment. 
  • Beat after adding the brown sugar until mixed. 
  • After cleaning the bowl, add the molasses and beat until combined.

Step 3: 

  • In a small bowl, add the baking soda. Stir to dissolve after adding 1½ tablespoons of extremely hot water on top. 
  • Set apart.

Step 4: 

  •  Add ½ of the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat just long enough to incorporate the flour. 
  • Next, add the baking soda and water mixture after scraping the bowl’s sides. 
  • Add the remaining flour mixture, and beat just long enough to make the flour disappear. 
  • Add the chocolate chunks and any chocolate “dust” and stir, using a wooden spoon if necessary to distribute the chunks evenly. 
  • On a wide piece of plastic wrap, turn out the dough and pat it into a rough round.
  • Keep in the refrigerator for 2 hours to 3 days. 

Step 5: 

  • Set the oven’s temperature to 325F before beginning to bake. Parchment paper or silicone baking mats should be used to line two baking sheets. 
  • Make 1-inch-tall balls out of the dough (they will look quite large). 
  • Place on the baking pans, then cool in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Step 6: 

  • Place the cooled dough balls on the baking pans two inches apart after coating them with granulated sugar. About 10 to 12 minutes into baking, the surfaces should just start to crack. The cookies will seem underbaked. 
  • Transfer to a wire rack and let cool for another (however long you can handle the anticipation) after 5 minutes on the baking sheets. Enjoy!
