Chocolate-Dipped Gingersnaps

Chocolate-Dipped Gingersnaps

Give me a good gingersnap and I’m happy. Dip them in dark chocolate and crystallized ginger, and I’m downright elated. What an idea, marrying gingersnaps with heart-healthy chocolate and healing, sweet-spicy candied ginger!

Although I adore making cookies from scratch, I also love recipes where you can dress up store-bought items, like this one. Look for a good quality ginger cookie in your natural foods store.

8 small organic gingersnaps
1/3 cup bittersweet chocolate chips, melted (see Tip)
1 tablespoon finely chopped crystallized ginger
1 tablespoon finely chopped dried cranberries

1. Dip gingersnaps into melted chocolate. Let the excess drip off.
2. Place on a wax paper-lined plate. Sprinkle with crystallized ginger and cranberries.
3. Refrigerate until the chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.

Tip: To melt chocolate, microwave on Medium for 1 minute. Stir, then continue microwaving on Medium in 20-second intervals until melted, stirring after each interval. Or place in the top of a double boiler over hot, but not boiling, water. Stir until melted.
