Chewy Chocolate-Gingerbread Cookies

I like to put chocolate chips on my gingerbread men, so I had a feeling that I would like these cookies. I was right. They are chewy, a bit crispy, and filled with gooey chocolate inside.

Some notes about the recipe: Sometimes Martha makes things more complicated than they need to be. I used a mixture of good quality chopped chocolate and plain old chocolate chips, and I think they'd be just as good if I had skipped the expensive stuff. I chilled the dough in the mixing bowl (instead of plastic wrap) for an hour or so before scooping with a cookie scoop, rolling in sugar and baking. I used a medium cookie scoop and they needed about 13 or 14 minutes in the oven.


  1. This is my favorite holiday cookie recipe. I found them in MSL years ago and make them every Christmastime now. They are a little more complicated, but I like that they are for more grown up tastes and my kids mostly leave them for me!

  2. Those look seriously delicious. I might have to try them soon.

  3. Copied you and made them the other day loved them Crispy and delicious.
