Squidgy Double Chocolate Gingernuts

Had a bit of a fancy for baking even though I'm Atkinsing and could not find a recipe that I liked and so put together a bit of a mixture of various recipes and this is the result.

220g Plain flour
2 Tspn Bicarbonate of soda
4 Tspn Baking powder
2 Heaped teaspoons ground ginger
20 g Cocoa
100g Butter
80g Golden caster sugar
200g Dark Chocolate chopped into small pieces
8 Balls of Stem ginger cut into smallish chunks ( not too small )
About half a jar of remaining ginger syrup

Preheat oven to 180c
Mix first five ingredients in a large bowl.
Mix in chocolate and ginger and then add enough ginger syrup to make a dough which clings when formed into a ball.
Form into largish walnut sized balls and place on a pre-papered tin.
Bake for about 10 minutes.

I am reliably informed that these are a little too gingery ( youngest son ) and lovely with a unexpected gingery hit ( Pukka , youngest son's friend and whose opinion I am accepting ).
