Is it possible to use fusible web to iron a fleece applique onto cotton knit fabric?

I think my question sums it up, but basically I have some fleece that has a gingerbread pattern on it. I want to cut out a gingerbread cookie and attach it to a cotton knit sweater. I have fusible web and want to know if it will work. I also plan to embroider the edges for extra strength.

Yes, but as the underlying knit is stretched, the bond between the two fabrics will break. Better to sew it on and forget the fusible (which will just make it stiff). If you’re worried about the applique shifting when you are working on sewing around it, you can glue the applique on with something like Elmer’s School Glue — let it dry, then sew, then wash the sweater to get rid of the glue.
