I love Christmas.  I particular I love spending time with my boys making homemade sweets and chocolates. We then bag these up to share with friends and family. As my mum is a big fan of ginger we always make some ginger based sweets. This year we are going to include this fabulous recipe – Chocolate Bark with crystallised ginger. This recipe is so easy to make yet is stunning.  Break it into small pieces for an indulgent treat and so much healthier than shop bought offerings.  Vary the ingredients too – we often add a handful of goji berries or dried cranberries.
