I love, love, love, and adore the combination of ginger and chocolate. Don't you? Well, these soft, puffy chocolate ginger cookies are the best of both worlds. Richly chocolate, heavily spiced...heaven.

Once you bite into the cookie, you'll find melty chocolate and bits of crystallized ginger. Crystallized ginger is just SO can find it at the grocery store. I got mine at Trader Joe's.

I definitely think Santa would approve of these being on his cookie plate! ;)

Chocolate Ginger Cookies
{makes about 18 cookies}

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour
1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup Wholesome!™ Organic Coconut Palm Sugar
1/4 cup Wholesome!™ Organic Light Corn Syrup
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup finely chopped crystallized ginger
granulated sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 325. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and chocolate chips together over low heat until melted. Remove from heat and let cool.

Whisk the flour, cocoa, spices, baking powder, and salt together. In a bowl of an electric mixer, beat the coconut sugar, corn syrup, eggs, and vanilla until well combined. Beat in the chocolate mixture. On low speed, add in the flour mixture in two additions, scraping down the bottom and sides of the bowl as needed. Stir in the chips and crystallized ginger.

Place the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Use a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop to make balls of the dough. If desired, roll in granulated sugar. Place onto the prepared sheets. Bake for 12 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool. (Place the dough back in the refrigerator between batches.)
