Somehow Dolfin was able to infuse a gingerbread taste into these little dark chocolate squares. And, since I love gingerbread, you'll get no argument from me on this Noir Gingembre combination.
Today was Day #2 of Chocolate and Spicy Roots Theme Week. Ginger is probably the most common spicy root mixed with chocolate. Ginger's strong flavor holds up nicely against almost any dark chocolate you can throw at it. However, sarsaparilla/sarsparilla, root beer, and other root-based flavors also mix surprisingly well with Theobroma Cacao (also known as the the food of the Gods).
