I have this bad habit of whipping up batches of cookies at say… 11:43 pm.

You know the story. Diligence and healthy choices from dawn until dusk, then in a moment of weary relaxation at the end of the day, I let down my guard and BAM, cookies.

A complete undoing in 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Making Double Chocolate Cookies with Ginger and Cherries

I should be headed off  to bed, but instead I’m a prisoner to a momentary whim, too weak to say no.

That’s the thing about life, you’ve got to live in a state of constant awareness or something will get the best of you. Like Double Chocolate Cookies with Ginger and Cherries.

How To: Double Chocolate Cookies with Ginger and Cherries

I remember staring at my report card in seventh grade, trying to decipher what the teacher meant by “needs to be more assertive.”

Then I looked down at my feet and remembered I’d been wearing unmatched socks all day because my mother handed them to me that morning and I didn’t want to hurt her feelings.

Maybe “assertive” means speaking up for yourself in order to wear matching socks. Or putting your foot down when someone is trying to take advantage of you. Maybe it simply means “able to resist late night cookies.”

Fabulous Double Chocolate Cookies with Ginger and Cherries

If the latter is true, I’m sad to tell you I am still not assertive. I’ve come a long way since seventh great, but Double Chocolate Cookies with Ginger and Cherries still get the upper-hand sometimes.

That’s ok, these cookies are worth it.

Best Double Chocolate Cookies with Ginger and Cherries

Double Chocolate Cookies with Ginger and Cherries, buttery chocolate dough speckled with dark chocolate chips, plump cherries, and crystallized ginger.

Did I mention the secret ingredient? These double chocolate cookies have a hefty dose of Kahlua liquor in them. The hint of coffee and boozy essence intensify the chocolate, and the tart cherries and heat from the ginger manage to balance these cookies to the point of irresistibly.

    The cookies look amazing. I could go for a batch. I never bake at night BUT I have gotten the urge really early in the a.m. and put together something on the whim. It is so much fun and then you get to eat something delicious. And decadent.
