Chocolate Almond Molasses Chews
Warm and gooey, nothing says welcome home from a hard day at school (or work) like cookies fresh from the oven. Pour some milk and relax!
Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Cream butter, brown sugar, and molasses with a mixer on medium speed until smooth, 5 minutes.
Combine eggs and vanilla; beat into creamed mixture in two additions until incorporated.
Whisk together flour, ginger, cinnamon, and salt; blend into butter mixture in three additions until combined.
Stir in 11⁄3 cups chocolate chips and 1⁄2 cup almonds. Scoop dough with #40 scoop (about 11⁄2 Tbsp.) onto prepared baking sheets. Bake cookies until edges are set and centers are no longer shiny, 12–14 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheet, 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack.
Melt remaining chocolate chips and drizzle over cooled cookies; chop remaining 1⁄2 cup almonds and sprinkle over the tops.
