Archive for the ‘Chocolate’ Category

I have never made home made chocolates before and I found this recipe from one of my team mates in the recipe swap I’m in this month. It immediately caught my eye as it is good for people who can not take a lot of dairy as my brother, so I thought I would try it. Well my whole family love ginger and this has an absolutely wonderful gingery kick to it. I used very expensive swiss chocolate for both mixing with the ginger and also for coating, so they were extra gourmet and totally indulgent. To read more reviews on this recipe please click here. I will say when processing the ginger mix, do not over process, I did and thought they would have been much better with some more small ginger chunks in them.

250g Ginger biscuits
400g Crystallized ginger
100g Chocolate (I used creamy milk chocolate)
300g Chocolate, for coating. (I used dark chocolate)


1. Pulverize the biscuits in your food processor until fine crumbs.

2. Add the ginger and process 30 seconds, re-arrange and process another 30 seconds.

3. Add the chocolate, broken into small pieces, and process until it all comes together in a tacky ball.

4. Spread on a tray and refrigerate until you can easily roll it into small balls.

5. Put the balls on baking paper, and return to fridge overnight.

6. Melt the extra chocolate and dip each ginger ball to coat, refrigerate until hardened.
