I have been stressed to almost my absolute limit these past couple of weeks, due in part to my little blog here. I don't think I can include details, but it's been enough to make me want to hit the delete button on my entire blog. This place is meant to be therapeutic, but instead an issue has come up out of the blue that has ended up being one of the biggest stressors in my life in years.
So to calm myself down, I chose to bake, and these dark chocolate orange cookies with pieces of candied ginger were born.
I had some candied ginger from Paradise Foods that I received in the mail last week, and I wanted to try to put it to good use. The three main flavors in these cookies - chocolate, orange, and ginger - is a powerful trio.
The cookies get a double load of chocolate from the cocoa powder in the batter and then some dark chocolate chips stirred in at the end. When you get a perfect bite and all of the flavors blow up in your mouth, you'll know you've found pure holiday bliss.
Well, maybe not totally. It's still okay to not be okay, but at least for a moment you enjoyed something delicious and were maybe distracted?
These cookies would be ideal for a holiday cookie exchange if you want to bring something just a little different than the usual prospects. Enjoy!Print
