1 Tsp Ground Ginger

3.       Stir in the sugar.

4.       Work the golden syrup into the mixture, first with a spoon or spatula and then with your hand.

5.       Once the mixture has come together, wrap it in greaseproof paper or cling film and chill for at least 3 hours or until needed.

7.       Bake on a baking tray at 160c for 8-10 minutes.
