Chocolate Ginger Biscuit

Chocolate Ginger Biscuit

A taste of Christmas in a biscuit. These Chocolate Ginger Biscuits can be made vegan by replacing the butter with a dairy free alternative, but either way are a delicious treat with a cup of tea. 



  • 100g unsalted butter, cubed (or plant based alternative) 
  • 75g light brown soft sugar
  • 1 1/2  tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 bar of our Just Ginger Dark Chocolate


  • Heat the oven to 180C. Line two large baking  trays with baking paper.
  • In a saucepan over a low heat, melt the butter, sugar, fresh ginger and golden syrup and leave to cool. 
  • Mix the flour, ground ginger and bicarbonate of soda together in a bowl with a wooden spoon. Gradually stir in the cooled sugar mixture and the egg yolk and knead briefly to make a dough.
  • Roll the dough into balls, roughly the size of a ping pong ball and put on the prepared baking trays with a couple cm between. . Bake for 8-10 mins until golden brown, remove from the oven and leave to cool on the trays. Meanwhile melt the chocolate gentle in a glass bowl set over a pan of simmering water (making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water)
  • When the chocolate is melted remove the bowl from the pan and dip each biscuit in the melted chocolate then return to the trays for the chocolate to set.
