Do you ever just want something, but don’t want the work that goes along with it? I mean, gingerbread cookies are really fun, especially making the little men and women with gumdrop buttons and icing rick rack. So cute! I get it! But sometimes you just want the cookie… know what I mean? This is a wonderful gingerbread cookie recipe that will bake up nice and soft and delivers a warm, spicy flavor you will love.

I used this same recipe when I made these cute gingerbread face cookies for Kaboose (note that they wanted to list a recipe from their site so it’s not the same as the one I used which is listed here on this post), but this time I wanted to make things a little simpler. Instead of decorating with candy, gumdrops and other such confections, I chose chocolate. Good choice, I know. :) Chocolate rocks, no doubt about it, and I love both regular and white chocolate, so I just did some simple drizzles and all was good in the world.
Incidentally, I used these awesome candy making and dipping bars from Ghirardelli that I got from Sam’s Club. it melts beautifully and dries glossy. Great stuff! These would be perfect for cake balls or dipped fruits. I plan to make chocolate covered pretzels an pretzel rods with them too.

So if you would like to keep things simple, try these gingerbread cookies. Roll them a little thicker than what the recipe states and they’ll stay nice and soft. Either way they are wonderful!
