How do I make the Chocolate Dipped Molasses Cookies?

This holiday cookie recipe comes together in less than an hour with just a few simple steps. Here is what you will need to do to make this classic cookie recipe.

Step 1: Preheat Oven and Prepare Wet Ingredients

Preheat the oven to 375 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large mixing bowl, beat together using a stand mixer or hand mixer, the softened butter and brown sugar for one to two minutes or until light and fluffy. Next, add in the egg and molasses and beat until completely mixed.

Step 2: Prepare dry ingredients and combine with wet ingredients

Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and cloves in a medium bowl. Then, slowly add dry ingredients to flour sifter and sift into the butter mixture.  Mix with a spoon or wooden spatula until combined. Do not over mix at this step. 

Pro Tip: If you do not have a flour sifter, you can still make this! Put all dry ingredients in a bowl, and swiftly mix with a fork or a whisk to get a similar effect.

Step 3: Chill the dough, prepare cookies and bake

Next, cover the bowl with the cookie dough and place it in the refrigerator to chill for 15-20 minutes. This will help make it easier to handle when making it into balls, and the dough will also be less sticky.

After the dough is chilled, place the granulated sugar in a shallow bowl. Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, scoop and roll into a ball, then roll in the granulated sugar and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown. Watch closely, as they can burn very easily!

Step 4: Cool cookie completely, dip in chocolate and add decorations 

Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, this will allow them to keep shape when transferred to the cooling rack. Then, transfer to cooling rack. Once completely cooled, melt almond bark in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until completely melted.  Dip  1/3 of your cookie into the melted bark. Then, sprinkle on festive jimmies, . Once the almond bark is set on the cookies, serve and enjoy!

Dipped Molasses Cookie Facts, Questions and Answers

How do I store the cookies?

These cookies can be stored in a covered air tight container for up to 5 days. I find that storing them in the refrigerator keeps them fresh longer. However, they can also be stored at room temperature. Tip: Add a piece of fresh bread to the container to help the cookies retain their moisture.

The molasses cookies also store well in the freezer in an airtight container for up to 3 months. When ready to eat, take the desired amount of cookies out and let them thaw o the counter top for 15 to 20 minutes before eating.
