Default Chocolate with chile powder

Who knew it was soooo good?

When I was in Portland last month, visitin' Rainy, I made a run to Moonstruck and spent waaaaay too much money on chocolate. I've been munching on it slowly since then, savoring its goodness (Burtimus likes the mint tingles which are refreshing and very light) but I had two chocolate bars that I knew I probably wouldn't be totally into -- the chile variado chocolate bar and the ivory chocolate bar. Both came in the set below, and I wasn't sure how into them I'd be, so they were sitting around, uneaten. I went to a little party today, brought them to share, and they were a hit. I had no idea that chile and chocolate went so well together. The first bite is of the chocolate.... bliss. Then you get a little afterglow..... then an afterburn..... which is also, surprisingly, blissful.

And addictive? Oh heck yeah. We kept breaking off pieces, saying, "oooooh" and "aaaaahhhh", fanning our mouths and digging in for another piece. Great stuff!

Anyone know of any other good chocolate that has chile pepper in it? This stuff has definitely peaked my interest and I'm wondering how common a combo this is. I liked it!

Whenever I make chilli I always add cocoa to it, makes the chilli really rich. Dont usually tell people when I get them to try, but they always like it!

I've been making chili chocolate chip cookies for about 15 years now!
Just use any basic chocolate chip cookie recipe and add 1, 2 or 3 tablespoons to the mix depending on how hot you want it!!

Vick, have you seen the wonderful film, Chocolat? Chili powder seems to be the secret ingredient in some of her concoctions.

And actually, it needs to be actual "chili powder" not the stuff for tacos that also has cumin and onion and garlic powders mixed in.

Tina, I loved that movie, as well as "Like Water for Chocolate" (I think that's the name of it). Gee, sense a theme here?

I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try to make chocolate with chili powder in it, but it sure tasted good to try. It was divine.

Yes, I like both of those films, too. Very different feels to them, but both excellent.
Vick, why not make a cup of hot chocolate that way? If you make it yourself you can always adjust the hotness.

I know it seems odd, but the chili really does add to the chocolate pleasure. I'm not sure about tablespoons of the stuff, but a dash in my hot cocoa makes all the difference.

I've been hearing about chocolate/chili combos for a while now and I've been meaning to try some.I've heard *really* good things about Vosges chocolates.Vosges has had a chocolate/chili bar in their lineup for quite some time now and that is only one of many offbeat flavor combos they offer.The only thing that has stopped me from ordering is that they are rather expensive and I hesitate to order something pricey that I may or may not care for.Here is the link:

In Mexico, the Indians used to put chili in their chocolate. They still do. I don't recall which kind.

They also use a concoction of chile and chocolate to make 'mole' sauce (pronounced moh-ley) for a main dish with either chicken or turkey and it's delicious!
