Hi there
Has anyone used powdered ginger or cinnamon to flavour melted chocolate?
I know you're supposed to use flavoured oils, but I'm in a new city and have no idea where to get it (let alone no transport!). i have the usual ground spices here at home so wondering if I can use them?

Thanks in advance - w

You can use ground spices, BUT the flavors will get lost in the Chocolate because the chocolate flavor will dominate. That's why they suggest oils, they're concentrated and very powerful.
