Here it is.... as requested by Applie.... ENJOY!
I don't usually dip them into the vanilla chocolate unless I am doing something special. You can also sprinkle color "sprinkles" on the part you dipped into vanilla for an added festive touch.... BUT.... we love them plain!


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 TBSP ground ginger
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt
  • additional sugar
  • 2 pkgs (12 oz each) vanilla baking chips

In a mixing bowl, combine sugar and oil, mix well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in molasses. Combine dry ingredients, gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
