What are chocolate gingerbread cookies?

These magical weeks leading up to the holiday season are the perfect excuse to make a wholeeeee buncha cookies. And these chocolate gingerbread cookies are the quintessential Christmas cookie. I feel like with holiday cookies I’m often picking between something chocolatey and something spiced, but with these you get the best of both worlds. They have the most incredible soft, fudgy texture with a chewy edge and a soft center. Pair that texture with the perfect amount of cozy gingerbread spice and you have yourself a perfect cookie.

Our tips for making the fudgiest chocolate gingerbread cookies

I love holiday cookie season because most cookie recipes are super easy and accessible, so you can whip these up on a whim even if you’re not a baking pro! These cookies come together quickly and the dough is very forgiving, so don’t stress–you’re going to have INCREDIBLE cookies.

  • Use high quality ingredients: The quality of your ingredients will make or break the final product, so make sure you’re using the highest quality ingredients to make them!
  • Under bake them: The key to soft cookies is keeping them a little gooey in the middle. Cookies will continue to cook as they cool down so if you take them out of the oven when they’re fully baked, they’ll actually cool to overbaked. An overbaked cookie might taste fine hot out of the oven, but a week later it’s hard as a rock. Take the cookies out when they are still gooey in the middle for best results!
  • Freeze them until you’re ready to eat/mail them: Freezing your cookies will seal in all that freshness of a fresh baked cookie until you’re ready to chow down.

Happy holidays and happy baking, my friends!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Countryside Creamery Sweet Cream Unsalted Butter
  • 3/4 cup Simple Nature Organic Brown Sugar
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup Simply Nature Organic Cane Sugar, for rolling the cookies

Instructions

    1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
    2. In a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
    3. Add the molasses and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
    4. Add the egg. Beat well.
    5. In a separate bowl, stir together the cocoa, flour, baking soda, baking powder, 2 teaspoons of the cinnamon, ginger, cloves, nutmeg and salt.
    6. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and beat until combined and no streaks of flour remain.
    7. Use a 1.5 ounce cookie scoop to scoop out rounded cookies. Roll the cookies in the cane sugar if desired and place two inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
    8. Bake for 12 minutes, or until the cookies have puffed up and crinkled and are set on the edge, but still gooey in the middle. Allow to cool completely before using a spatula to transfer to a wire rack. Enjoy!
