In a medium mixing bowl whisk together cocoa powder, flour, ginger, pumpkin pie spice, and baking soda.  Set aside.

In a large bowl whisk together the melted butter, brown sugar, molasses, egg, and sour cream.  Whisk just until combined.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk together just until combined.  Add the chocolate chips and stir lightly.  

Pour batter into pan and lightly smooth the top with the back of a spoon.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.  Let cool 5 minutes in pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.  Sprinkle lightly with confectioner's sugar.
