Cookies : Chocolate Chip Ginger Nuts

Cookies : Chocolate Chip Ginger Nuts

Recipe source :  Delia Smith

One can never have too many cookies for Chinese New Year. No matter how much you baked the cookies are capable of performing the disappearing act all on its own! Well, you see, nobody will know how the cookie jar becomes empty!


50g cooking chocolate, chopped into little chunks
1 tsp ginger powder
110g self-raising flour
10g cocoa powder
50g butter, cut into cubes
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
40g granulated sugar
20g almond nibs
2 tbsp golden syrup


1.  Preheat oven to 180 degree C.
2.  Sift self-raising flour, cocoa, ginger powder and bicarbonate of soda into a mixing bowl.
3.  Using your fingers, rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in sugar, chopped chocolate chunks and almond nibs.
4.  Add in golden syrup and mix everything together with your hands.
5.  Divide mixture into 16 equal portions and roll each portion to form a ball.
6.  Flatten the ball slightly and place on greased baking tray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes. 
7.  Cool completely and store into air-tight jars.
