Rich Ginger + Cherry Drinking Chocolate

by Sarah on February 10, 2014 · 2 comments

By my (highly intensive) calculations, you have three options when it comes to the incredibly indulgent in-shell pistachio pairing I revealed to y’all on Saturday:IMG_4006 (1024x684)

1. Maintain the simplicity of the original endeavor and consume cubes of crystallized ginger, slabs of dark chocolate, nibbles of dried cherries, and (snap) crackle and pops of pistachios as they are.IMG_4028 (1024x683)

2. Combine the phenomenal flavors of sweet cherry and spicy ginger  into a rich, dark drinking chocolate to be enjoyed either hot or cold–I can confirm deliciousness at both temperatures–alongside those pistachios.IMG_4050 (1024x683)

3. Melt down those slabs of dark chocolate, get to chopping, and stir everything up into a decadent bark (that’s just as good as its bite.)IMG_20140208_210415

Although, come to think of it, there is a fourth option for those of y’all–like me–who cannot make easy decisions to save their lives:IMG_4127 (1024x681)

Buy enough of everything to have it all at once.IMG_4061 (1024x683)

Ohhhhh… can this count as a post-workout recovery drink? Ginger and cherry are great for inflammation. 😉

I’m with Laura. All of these sound incredible, but I think I’d like to dunk the bark in the drinking chocolate.
