I'm not a fan of the taste of gingerbread, so I can't answer this myself with a taste test. I'm making some mini gingerbread boys for the office. My questions is...does chocolate pair well with the flavor of gingerbread? I was going to coat the boys in melted chocolate and decorate. Again, they are mini cakes about 3 1/2 inches tall so it wouldn't be alot of chocolate.
I'm not the biggest gb fan either, but chocolate does work - it actually makes gb taste better. I had some broken gb cookie from a failed house attempt and made a black forest gingerbread trifle. It was pretty good.. toned down the taste fof the gb. Lemon is also a good combo, apparently.
FUNNY! I have chocolate gingerbread cookies in the oven right now! They are SO GOOD!
