We Should Cocoa - February

I am very excited to be hosting We Should Cocoa this month especially as it is my birthday month, both my blog and I are celebrating being another year older in a few days. This is one of my favourite challenges as I love chocolate so I'm honoured to be hosting for February. As I'm hosting I get to choose the challenge ingredient for the month and when I was checking back through previous challenges I was quite surprised to see that this one hadn't been picked as it's one of my favourite chocolate combinations. The We Should Cocoa ingredient for February is ... Ginger.

I love nibbling on pieces of crystallised ginger enrobed in dark chocolate and I've made chocolate and ginger brownies in the past. Make anything you like using chocolate and ginger and link up your entries below. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!

  3. Perfect! I have been on a ginger bender recently!

  4. Excellent choice Jen, love ginger and it goes so well with chocolate :D

  5. Brilliant choice, I was toying with ginger when I hosted as it's one of my favourites too so I'm glad it's been picked! I've just made something that would be suitable, but I don't know if it's quite gingery enough... might make something else but keep it as a back up!

  6. Chocolate ginger mmmmmmm, my favourite!

  7. Hmmm ... very interesting! I'll have to think on this one!

  8. There are some amazing things on the linky list already!
