chocolate and ginger chunk cookies

I made some crystallised ginger the other day, primarily to obtain ginger syrup to add to hot apple juice to make delicious hot spiced juice, and thought I’d use the ginger left over to make these cookies. As in the delicious treacle cookies, the black treacle means that the cookies are delightfully chewy, though I’ll admit that they’re not the best lookers in the world! Allow plenty of room for spreading.
