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!

  • 3Add flour, cocoa, and spices, stir until well blended, adding more flour if necessary to make a stiff dough.

  • 6Cut out with desired cookie cutters and place on ungreased baking sheets.
