Description

Adding spicy chile pepper to chocolatey sweets, including ice cream, hot chocolate, and these brownies, is not just a passing fad but based on a longstanding tradition in Mexico and elswehere to provide a kick of welcome heat that balances out the sweet factor and matches the intensity of dark chocolate.
