Ginger Goodies

These ginger biscuits dipped in dark chocolate are a recent discovery, and will now become a go-to bake of mine…scrummy!

100g caster sugar
150g soft light brown sugar
150ml vegetable or sunflower oil
80g black treacle
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
220g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
Soft light brown sugar (for rolling)

For Dipping:
525g dark chocolate, melted
1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (fan assisted) and line two large baking trays.
2. Combine your sugars, oil, treacle, egg and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Then add your dry ingredients until just combined. Your mixture will be fairly sticky, but this is a good thing!
3. Make your mixture into small balls…this should make roughly 20, or maybe 16 big ones.

4. Then roll in soft light brown sugar and add to the baking tray.
5. Bake for 8 minutes or until you can see the surface of the biscuits begin to crack. They may look a little under-done, but have faith, they’ll harden up once out of the oven and be such lovely gooey treats.
6. Leave to cool on a wire cooling rack.
7. Once cooled, dip one half of the biscuit into your melted dark chocolate and leave to cool again.
8. Then enjoy with a nice cup of tea!
