I made this quick, easy recipe and opened the bag to find a bag of Heath toffee bits. I cut them using a cheese grater and served them with a toffee topping. I liked the unique addition and if I had used fresh ground ginger they would have added much more flavor. I only used three drops of ginger and used one Tablespoon each of dried lemon and orange zest. I think next time I will add more turmeric and cayenne pepper. It was a blast! Thank you for sharing.
