Holiday Chocolate Chocolate Chip Ginger Cookies

These cookies can really go for any holiday dependent on the colored sugar you use.

I prefer them in fall and winter cooking (my absolute favorite time to bake), because of the gingerbread flavor.

A little trick, to get your desired colored sugar if you don't want to buy it, mix a few drops of food coloring per half a cup of sugar. Shake well and add more or less drops to get the vibrancy you desire.
