I have made these delicious cookies for almost 10 years at Christmas. The chocolate and gingerbread flavors blend nicely and the dough bakes up chewy. They are cookie cutter cookies so you can make shapes with the dough. I always use the gingerbread man cutter and I never decorate them but that is an option. Children of all ages love them!

How to Make Chocolate Gingerbread Men

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream butter, brown sugar, corn syrup, and molasses. (I subsitute dark agave nector for the corn syrup and cut it back to 1/3 cup.)
  2. Add egg and beat until well blended.
  3. Add flour, cocoa, and spices, stir until well blended, adding more flour if necessary to make a stiff dough.
  4. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, use a floured rolling pin to roll out dough to 1/8-inch thickness.
  6. Cut out with desired cookie cutters and place on ungreased baking sheets.
  7. Bake in a preheated 325-degree oven 8 to 12 minutes.
  8. Cool and remove from baking sheets. Keep in covered containers.
