Due to a few requests, here is the recipe for the Chocolate Ginger Chews that I baked up for Christmas.
- 150 g butter, softened
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup golden syrup
- 1 ¼ teaspoons ground ginger
- 1 ½ cups plain flour
- ¼ cup cocoa
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 200 g dark chocolate, chopped
- ½ cup white sugar (for rolling)
Place the butter, brown sugar and golden syrup in the bowl of electric mixer and beat for 8-10 minutes or until pale and creamy. Add the ginger, flour, cocoa, and baking soda, and beat until a smooth dough forms. Add the chocolate and mix until well combined. Refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 180 deg C. Roll tablespoons on the dough into balls and roll in white sugar. Place on baking trays lined with non stick baking paper. Bake for 16-18 minutes or until surface cracks. Allow to cool on wire racks. Makes 24.
