Chocolate Wafers with Ginger & Orange

Chocolate Wafers with Ginger & Orange
Makes 8-10 wafers
Adapted from Food & Wine 

10 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
1/4 cup candied ginger, minced
1/4 cup candied orange peel (recipe follows)
8-10 thin, crisp crackers (such as Finn crisps or Kavli, which we used)
sea salt 

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt chocolate in a large, shallow heat-proof bowl in the microwave in 30-second bursts, stirring between each blitz, until the chocolate is mostly melted, about 2 minutes. Dip each cracker in the chocolate and use a spatula to completely coat each cracker front and back. Allow some of the excess chocolate to drip off then lay the cracker on the parchment. Quickly sprinkle some of the ginger and orange peel on the cracker. Repeat with additional wafers until the chocolate is used up. Note: the amount of crackers needed will vary depending on the brand used since they vary in size significantly. Sprinkle the partially cooled chocolate-covered wafers with sea salt. Place the baking sheet in the fridge to cool and harden further. Serve when completely set.
