Tessa's Recipe Rundown...
Taste: I never knew how much chocolate and gingerbread belonged together until first making these cookies years ago. HEAVEN.
Texture: You’re going to die. These cookies are perfectly chewy, gooey, and decadent with a slight crunch from the sugar coating.
Ease: There’s more prep work involved with this recipe as it requires fresh grated ginger (don’t even try to leave that out!) and chopped chocolate (you could use packaged chocolate chunks) AND some chilling time.
Appearance: Sparkly and loaded with molten chocolate and just YUM.
Pros: My all-time favorite Christmas cookie. It isn’t December without these cookies.
Cons: No immediate gratification here unless you freeze the dough balls for baking off whenever the craving hits (which I definitely do).
Would I make this again? I’ve been making this recipe for 5 years now!
