    Chocolate Ginger Cookies

    I know you’re looking for a new favorite cookie. Well, I may have found a good one here. These soft chocolate cookies are full of ginger flavor! I loved the warmth of the ginger with the sweet flavor of the chocolate cookie. There were a delicious pairing.

    These are the perfect cookies for snacking on in the winter time. Snuggle up with the family, put on a movie and enjoy a few of these yummy treats.


    On to these amazing cookies! I used dried, unsweetened ginger candy chunks to add some warmth to the cookies. I love the way that ginger just warms up my body from the inside. I know it’s not for everyone, but I really do enjoy it.

    If you’re not a big fan of whole ginger, you can use fresh ginger in place of the candy bits in the cookie.

    The original recipe called these “Gingersnaps”, but there was nothing snappy about them. They were thick and chewy and so good!

    Wherever you are, whatever the temperature, I hope that you are staying warm with loved ones and cookies!
