Gingerbread and orange chocolate

This homemade chocolate is full of flavours of Christmas: chocolate, gingerbread and orange. I baked too many gingerbread cookies that I don't have time to eat, so I wanted to use part of them elsewhere, and this was just the perfect way.

These chunky chocolate pieces could make a nice homemade present. Here are the simple instructions how to make them.

You'll need these:

300 g dark baking chocolate
Zest of 1 orange
4-5 gingerbread cookies

This is what you do:

Gently melt the chocolate in a pot in a water bath until it has fully melted.

Grate the zest of the orange.

Crush the gingerbread cookies into various sized chunks.

Mix some of the orange zest and gingerbread cookie chunks into the melted chocolate.

Spread the chocolate on baking paper and sprinkle the rest of the gingerbread cookie pieces and orange zest on the top.

Let rest in the fridge for a few hours.

Then break it into smaller pieces and enjoy!
