Candied Ginger Week: Cocoa covered candied ginger

When one finds oneself with an excess of candied ginger (I seem to have mountains) one must find ways of using the spicy nuggets creatively. Here are a few simple steps to help support this endeavor:


Step 1: Place some cocoa powder in a container.

Step 2: Add about the same amount of your leftover candied ginger to said container.

Step 3: Place a lid on said container.

Step 4: Shake contents until evenly coated.

Step 5: Sprinkle on ice cream, use to decorate your next cake, mix with hot water and make some sort of weird (but probably delicious) tea, add to trail mix or just eat as a snack.

    Get in mah belly! Cocoa-covered candied ginger aside… how exactly did you end up with “mountains” of the stuff?

      One ends up with mountains of candied ginger when the enormous bag that one bought swiftly reveals itself to be going off. I needed to use it, so I did.

        That wasn’t the alluring response I had hoped for 😉 I was envisioning that it was gifted to you for being fabulous.

        Sorry darling. I was forced into making this. But I’m obviously still too fabulous for words.
