I got this recipe to use up some molasses and cocao powder that had been sitting around, but i was amazed how easy and good this recipe was. I will definitely make this one again.

Only good if you like bitter coffee flavors. Every one thought they were espresso cookies. These did not fly off the plate.

Very good and tasty. This is the best recipe for gingerbread cookies I've seen so far. Substituted dark corn syrup for molasses and used cookie cutters to make gingerbread men. Will make again.

Not only easy to make, but a great recipe. The chocolate and gingerbread flavors blend nicely, neither overwhelming the other. I brought these to work and received rave reviews. I will definitly make these again!

I was a bit nervous about these because of the strong scent of molasses. My nephews were the first to try them and loved them. Kids are the best critics:-) I will most certainly make these again next year.

These are nice cookies if you like real gingerbread. My picky husband who requested gingerbread cookies did not really like these, he said they were too strong and sweet. I said, that's what gingerbread is! I would probably not make these again due to my families preference but this is a good recipe, give it a try!
