There is nothing like fresh ginger in chocolate. Ironically, that is how the ginger-spiced hot chocolate recipe was made. So, without further wait, let me introduce you to the ginger hot chocolate recipe.

Fresh Ginger In Chocolate

Have you ever had a gingerbread man dipped in chocolate? If you have never tried it, then you should change that immediately.

Traditionally, I was not raised to eat gingerbread with chocolate, however, one day I went ballistic with the holiday desserts.

I had all kinds of desserts on my plate, but of course, that plate included gingerbread and chocolate. Usually, I do not let my food touch each other, but this day was different.

Due to the volume of sweetness on my plate, the chocolate and the gingerbread ended up cross-contaminating with each other.

This combination was a complete accident, but I am appreciative of that accident. Furthermore, that accident created a combination that was much needed in my life.

In other words, I knew then that fresh ginger in chocolate would be good together. Now, I am giving you all this combination in the form of the ginger-spiced hot chocolate recipe.

This Ginger-Spiced Hot Chocolate Recipe Is So Good!

What can I say? Chocolate is fantastic with ginger, especially when sugar is involved.

On that note, this is more of a reason to love this ginger hot chocolate recipe.

Also, it helps that I enjoy drinking both chocolate and ginger beverages. Speaking of ginger beverages, I feel as though chocolate drinks are more common than ginger drinks.

To further elaborate, it is easy to come across chocolate drinks such as chocolate milk, a chocolate latte, a chocolate shake, and so on.

For goodness’ sake, this is a hot chocolate recipe, how much more chocolate can you get?

On the contrary, you do not come across ginger beverages too often. The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are ginger beer and ginger ale.

Sure, there are probably thousands of recipes that will create a ginger drink, but if you were to go to your local grocery store, you will probably not have too many options.

Is Ginger Chocolate Good For You?

Fresh ginger in chocolate is good for you, and here is why. Ginger aids with indigestion, ginger improves circulation and is good for the immune system.

You can even use ginger as an appetite suppressant if you are trying to lose weight. Also, good nutrients are gained from consuming chocolate.
