Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies

Christmas baking is so much fun! I love to bake a lot of cookies during this time of the year.
Here is one more delicious cookie recipe that I’ll be sharing today. It is chocolate gingerbread cookies. Even though I used cocoa powder in the dough, the indistinguishable taste of a gingerbread cookie is still there.
If you love chocolate and gingerbread cookies, you will love this recipe.
Enjoy!!! 🎄
