  1. hello and good morning.
    I read over your recipe and was wondering if the ginger in your recipe is ground or fresh? Thank you.

    1. The chocolate chips that I use are 100% pure chocolate without any sugar added to it. So if you are not used to it, they will be bitter. They can be purchased from the Santa Barbara Chocolate Factory.
