What’s in them
How to make these
This is a very easy Christmas cookie recipe. All you need to do is mix the cookie ingredients, bake them, dip them, then dunk them!
These easy ginger cookies are laced with molasses and finished off with a smooth half-coat of sweet frosting made from white baking chips.
These ginger cookies are dipped in white chocolate, so you know they are fun to make and even more fun to eat!
White chocolate is usually sold in bar form and contains cocoa butter as an ingredient. White baking chips cannot be labeled as chocolate because they do not contain any cocoa butter. You can use either for this recipe.
If you store these in an air-tight container, these white chocolate dipped ginger cookies will last up to 10 to 14 days, making them idea for a Christmas cookie exchange.
These can be made ahead, frozen, and then served for the holidays to save you some time. Simply wrap and seal them in an air-tight container and thaw on the countertop when ready to use.
Of course! We are free thinkers here and lovers of all things chocolate. Use your favorite flavor.
