Triple Chocolate Gingerbread BarsOh, the weather outside is frightful…actually, it really is, although I am sure different from the originally intended lyrics. We have been having a heat wave in So Cal and there have been earth tremors and extreme fire dangers. With all this, I find myself increasingly prayerful…yet not anxious. Peace that passes all human understanding comes from only one place…knowing that God, at the same time, is both completely good and completely sovereign.While that truth wraps around me like a warm blanket, I have a holiday bar recipe that is not for the faint of heart. It is a deep, rich, dark chocolate gingerbread bar for those who are not afraid of the darker side of chocolate. This would be a great treat to share with friends as a little goes a long way.
