Scrumtious Ginger Crunch

This recipe actually came from the listener and with my tweek on it has become a real favourite .
People can't go past the storage container without saying I'll just have a little bit and always take the other piece.
If you love ginger you will love this chewy version.

Being a ginger myself, I love this stuff. Some pistachio nuts in the icing are a the only addition I'd make.
