I got some awesome gingerdead men cookie cutter/press from my “bestie” of many years (don’t ask how many “many” is, I try not to think about it).

Not having any good, fresh ginger around, I got a recipe from a cousin for chocolate gingerbread. I figured the chocolate would make up for the stale ginger powder, right?

Ah, if only that had been the worst of my problems.

I made a few changes to the recipe. I used special dark chocolate chips, demerara sugar, dark molasses. Otherwise I left it alone.

Let me say that the world can breathe a sigh of relief that I am not involved in any kind of medical care. The carnage is pretty ugly.

The results…the cookie cutters are great. The recipe was pretty good, with my adjustments.
The baker…could really use some work.
