Ingredients:  
1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs, beaten
3/4 cup candied ginger, finely chopped
1/2 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
1 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions:
Directions:
1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter and unsweetened chocolate over medium heat, stirring until smooth; let cool for 10 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350; line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper. In a large bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and alt. Whisk the eggs into the butter mixture, then stir into the dry ingredients until incorporated; stir in the ginger and chocolate chips.

3. Place the confectioners' sugar in a wide bowl. Shape half of the dough into 1-inch balls, then coat with the confectioners' sugar. Place the cookies about 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Bake, switching and rotating the pans after about 10 minutes, until the cookies puff and crack, 14 to 17 minutes total. Let cool for a minute before transferring to racks to cool completely. Repeat with the remaining half of the dough.

If you don't like the taste of ginger, or want a variant of this cookie, replace the candied ginger with chopped nuts (walnuts taste best in this recipe) or mint chips. Yum!
