Darrell Lea’s Dark chocolate covered ginger was the stock standard gift for Dad on every occasion until it started getting to hard to get a hold of. So what were we to do? Trying to find gifts for Dad is hard enough without losing our standard gift. Showing the usual spirit I thought ‘I can make that.’ and so I did. You can use dark or milk chocolate for this its up to you but our favourite is dark chocolate.

Place ginger pieces (a few at a time) in bowl of chocolate. use chopsticks or a fork to roll the ginger pieces around until covered with chocolate.
