Sea Salt & Crystallized Ginger Chocolate Wafers imperial


Crystallized Ginger


  • 24 saltine crackers
  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped crystallized ginger
  • Flaky sea salt, to taste


  1. To make crystallized ginger: Line baking sheet with wax paper and set a wire rack on top of that. Spray wire rack with non-stick spray.
  2. Combine sugar and water in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil and add ginger. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring frequently, until the liquid has almost evaporated, about 20 minutes.
  3. With a slotted spoon, transfer ginger immediately to wire rack. Let stand until dry, about 1 hour, and then roll slices in additional sugar if needed.
  4. To make wafer: Line baking sheet or tray with wax paper or silicone mat.
  5. Melt chocolate according to package directions. Dip saltine cracker into the melted chocolate. Using a fork flip over, gently lift out, and let excess chocolate drip off.
  6. Carefully slide onto waxed paper lined baking sheet and sprinkle with crystallized ginger and sea salt.
  7. Continue process until all crackers and chocolate have been used.
