Chocolate Covered Ginger Recipe

Ginger is something of a superfood. It’s been an ancient Chinese remedy for everything including nausea, diarrhea, the common cold, congestion, upset stomach, high-cholesterol, and heart disease. Basically, we should be eating much more of it. Add some antioxidant-rich dark chocolate and you have a healthy, delicious treat.

Chocolate-Covered Ginger

  • 6oz chocolate chips

  • 1/2lb candied ginger

  • Melt the chocolate over a double broiler or in a microwave safe bowl. Lay out a piece of parchment paper on the table where the ginger can cool

    One by one, dip the ginger into the chocolate, leaving a little uncovered at the top so people can see what it is.

    Shake off the excess chocolate and gently place it on the parchment paper to dry.

    Either let the chocolate cool at room temperature or move this on a tray to the refrigerator to harden quicker.
