Last Minute Chocolate Ginger Drops Recipe


Need something sweet for visiting guests but are short on time? Last Minute Chocolate Ginger Drops take about 15 minutes to put together; they require no baking, and only a minute or two in the microwave. If you’ve never tasted the combination of candied ginger and chocolate, you are in for a treat. These Chocolate Ginger Drops can, of course, also be made ahead and stored in a cool place, but if you’re as busy as most with all the tasks associated with Christmas or New Year’s, it seems last minute is usually the only time available.
””
Chocolate and candied ginger are very popular in European chocolate shops, and are generally quite expensive. They are much cheaper to make at home, even when using highest quality chocolate, which is an absolute must. These little bite-sized drops are elegant enough for fancy holiday parties or buffets, but you’ll find they are great to serve any time of year.

72 Drops

8 ounces dark chocolate
8 ounces milk chocolate
2 tablespoons butter

8 ounces candied ginger, chopped

Extra ginger pieces for garnish
  1. Chop the dark and milk chocolates and place in a microwave-safe container.
  2. Add the butter.
  3. Microwave 1 minute; let sit one minute, and stir.
  4. Microwave an additional minute and stir until melted. If the chocolate isn't melted and smooth, microwave an additional minute, stirring after 30 seconds.
  5. When the chocolate is melted and smooth, stir in the ginger.
  6. Scoop teaspoonfuls onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
  7. Chill until set.
  8. Store in an airtight container in a cool place.
