Orange Ginger Dark Chocolate Drops with Chrysanthemum Petals

Here is an easy recipe for dark chocolate flavored with candied ginger and orange peel. The flavors of orange and ginger are so good together in a ginger vanilla orange pound cake that I figured this flavor combination would taste awesome in dark chocolate as well. It’s delicious 😋. Then to add some fall color I sprinkled chrysanthemum petals which really transformed the chocolates into something beautiful. Try it!
