Delightful little soft gingerbread cookies that you simply must make this holiday season. Classic gingersnaps turned to the dark side with chocolate addition. These cookies are made in a chocolate version with added mini chocolate chips.
December holds the record for the most cookies baked. We’ve been making cookies at least twice a week here. Not that I’m complaining but I don’t know how much more my hips can take.
You see, I have a big weakness for cookies. I can resist cakes, cheesecakes and fudge, and I would be just fine having only a few bites a day. But cookies, cookies I can munch on all day long. That could be trouble. No wonder holidays are not figure friendly at all.
Although, my little man is very much enjoying the abundance of cookies and baking with me. He is fascinated with my stand up mixer and loves adding ingredients to it while it’s mixing. He is like a mad scientist.
After we made some gingerbread man cookies this year, I got a craving for gingersnaps. I wanted to run a little experiment to see if I could pull off gingersnaps in a chocolate version. We totally nailed it.
They were not just really, really tasty as a chocolate cookie, they are very simple and the texture was perfect. Soft and chewy, just like I like it.
