White Chocolate Dipped Ginger Cookies

Indulgent white chocolate dipped ginger cookies are perfect for fans of ginger and white chocolate. I love to make molasses and ginger Christmas cookies every year, although I do play around with the recipe a bit and make different variations. Christmas ginger snap cookies are great for a cookie exchange party. If you can bear to part with some, of course!

You know that ginger cookies are always good but add white chocolate to elevate them to the next level. These gingerbread white chocolate cookies are always impressive. They’re just so delicious! Even if you’re not a white chocolate fan you can make these. They’re nice with dark or milk chocolate too. Or even without the chocolate!

White Chocolate Dipped Ginger Cookies Ingredients

The usual suspects – flour, baking soda, butter, sugar, and egg – are included in the recipe. In addition you will need cinnamon and ginger for a warm, earthy spicy flavour, plus salt, molasses, shortening, and white chocolate chips.

The molasses in white chocolate dipped ginger cookies adds a rich sweetness to the flavour and helps them stand out from cookies using just sugar in the dough.

Why I Use Shortening in this Recipe

Shortening is made of 10% fat which means it can’t create any steam during cooking, as there’s no water in it. This lowers gluten production, meaning the cookies come out softer in texture. Because shortening melts at a much higher temperature than butter, the cookies will thicken as they bake, especially since I use baking soda for these gingerbread white chocolate cookies as well.

How to Make Molasses and Ginger Christmas Cookies

Whether these are for a cookie exchange or for you to enjoy, they’re not difficult to make. Grab a couple of bowls first of all. Combine the flour with the baking soda, salt, and spices in one bowl. Beat the butter with the brown sugar and molasses in another.

Now you can mix the dry ingredients into the wet ones. Have the whisk speed on low when you do this. If not, you will have flour flying up into the air (trust me on this!)

Cover the bowl then pop the batter into the refrigerator for an hour. Now you can roll out the dough. It will be cold so should roll out easily. Cut out the cookies with a round cookie cutter and arrange them on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Cook then for 10 minutes then let them cool completely. Once they’re cool you can dip them in melted chocolate!

See how simple these white chocolate dipped ginger cookies are? You need to plan slightly ahead because chilling the dough for an hour is important. It helps them keep a neat round shape instead of coming out ragged after cooking.

Tips for Perfection

I like to use these parchment paper sheets for Christmas ginger snap cookies as well as other kinds of cookies. Having them stuck to a baking sheet and breaking off isn’t fun.

Use any kind of chocolate you prefer or try different ones. I love white chocolate and think it goes best with the ginger flavour. If you aren’t a fan of chocolate, and I know some people aren’t, another option would be adding an icing on top. Or you could even leave them plain if you want to showcase the ginger flavour most of all.

What You Might Not Know About Ginger

I love these gingerbread white chocolate cookies so much. I’m a huge ginger fan! As you nibble white chocolate dipped ginger cookies, consider this. The word ‘gingerbread’ comes from ‘gingebras’, an Old French word for preserved ginger.

Ginger has been around for thousands of years and it’s used for medical reasons as well as its great flavour. The ancient Indians and Chinese used it as a tonic for various ailments. It’s also used as a stomach settler.

Nuremburg is Germany is the ‘Gingerbread Capital of the World’ while June 5 and November 21 are National Gingerbread Days. These Christmas ginger snap cookies are far too good to only make twice a year though! I typically prepare molasses and ginger Christmas cookies during the holidays but they’d be great at any time. Else don’t forget these are a great option for a cookie exchange if that’s something you do.
