The 12 Missions of Christmas | Mission 2: Mr. Gingerbread's New Recipe!

Hey, you’re back!

That’s very good news because we really need some help in the kitchen today.

Yes, you read that right, your second mission is fresh out of the oven!

Mr. Gingerbread’s kitchen is in full force preparing treats for Christmas, but he can use all the help he can get!

He wrote down some new recipes to try out this year, but he is running out of time!

So your mission today is to test out his new recipe for cookies.

I’ve sent you a copy of his recipe along with your letter, but here is the recipe in full as well:

Double Chocolate Cookies


  • 200g unsalted butter (room temperature)

  • 100g granulated sugar

  • 200g brown sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 275g flour

  • ½ tsp baking powder

  • ½ tsp salt

  • 75g cocoa powder

  • Dash of milk

  • 300g white chocolate chips (or chunks)

How to prepare it:

1) Beat unsalted butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar together.

2) Add the egg. Beat everything together.

3) Add flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. Mix until everything is combined.

4) Add a dash of milk if the dough is too dry and falling apart.

5) Mix in the white chocolate chips (or chunks)

6) Pre-heat oven at 180 C or 350 F.

7) Place cookies on a tray. This recipe asks for big, chunky cookies, so make big balls of dough and spread them in the tray at least 3 inches apart. Measure the size of your dough ball in the graphic on the printable recipe.

8) Bake cookies for 12-15 min.

9) Let cool for 30 min at least before eating!

Bon Appétit!
