  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup melted salted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cloves
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar for coating.


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together brown sugar, melted butter, egg, vanilla and molasses until smooth.
  2. Sift in cocoa powder.
  3. Add flour, baking soda, ground ginger, cinnamon and ground cloves. Mix until all combined. (You may have to switch to a spatula because the dough will get thick.)
  4. Fold in mini chocolate chips.
  5. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Roll 1-inch cookie dough balls and lightly coat them with white granulated sugar. Place on a baking sheet and gently press down a little. Repeat with 8-more cookie dough balls (depending on a size of your cookie sheet), placing them 2 inches apart. (Refrigerate the dough in between batches.)
  8. Bake for 10-11 minutes.
  9. Cool on a wire rack and enjoy.
