This'll spice up your love life. No, not talking about weird toys or little blue pills. Just something sweet, something spicy, something different.
I had made some candied ginger at the post before this. And it occurred to me to turn this plain little cube-like things into something a little more exotic than the usual chopped-up-and-put-into-cakes-or-cookies.
Valentine's Day is just around the corner. And may I remind everyone that this day isn't just for the head-in-the-clouds folks, but also for old fogies like me to appreciate and to send out some appreciation and some platonic love (in case some folks get the wrong idea here).
Ok, shutting up now .... going to get some spice in my life ... going to chew on some chocolate ginger. What were you thinking?
candied ginger (see previous post)
good quality dark chocolate (sweet, semi sweet, bitter, white, whatever)
Melt chocolate however you want. I zapped mine in the microwave in short bursts (so that it doesn't burn).
Stir in between zaps.
Dunk candied ginger pieces halfway into chocolate. (You can dunk the whole thing if you like).
Allow to cool and set in fridge.
*Tip: Skewer the ginger pieces, dunk them in chocolate and then stick the skewers into a styrofoam block while they cool and set (like a pin cushion) so that they don't get smeared.
February is #chocolatelove month! Check out all the gorgeous yummies!
