Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

In the directions it says to use fresh ginger but the ingredient list only list ground (dry) ginger. Which is it and how much is used?

Mine are gooey...I think the chocolate chips, and I don't really taste the spice...just the chocolate, but thats o.k. with me. Also they're a lot of work
