You wouldn’t expect mustard to be in this recipe but it really makes the ginger pop!  I recommend making this up as an addition to the cook party menu.  This recipe is easy to cut into appetizer size bites.  I hope you will take advantage of the printable recipe lower in this post on my site.

For this recipe you will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 tsp. ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp. ground cloves
