Today is National Gingerbread Day....do you believe it? Should be December, right? Anyway, back to the point of this...the recipe.
I find gingerbread cookies pretty, fun to decorate, and…… nasty. Can you say molasses overload? Don’t get me wrong, I love savory ginger dishes, gingerbread, gingersnaps, and brown sugar.
On the other hand, a batch of cookies that includes almost a cup of molasses? I’ll save those calories for a chocolate bar. However, discovering ginger softs a few years back turned a little light bulb on in my head. A light bulb that included a soft, sugary cookie dipped in chocolate.
So there you have it, Chocolate Dipped Soft Ginger Cookies. I also shaved chocolate into the last half of the cookie dough, but found I enjoyed the texture and flavor better with it on the outside.
