Loving all things spicy, I could eat something everyday with a little bit of heat! I’d take it in a cocktail, a snack, a meal…even in a dessert! Yep! That’s right! A little heat with something sweet! Spicy Chocolate Cake with Jalapeño Frosting is the best of both of my worlds! Chocolate with Spicy! Boy is it ever good! Whether you’re serving it for dessert or just a little something to satisfy your sweet tooth, you’ll agree that the combination of flavors is sure to get your tastebuds doing the tango!
Now remember, you don’t want to singe your palate with intense, off the Scoville Scale chart, heat pungency! So be careful with the peppers you use. My trick: I slice the chili and lightly touch the knife with my finger do a taste test. Too hot? Reduce the amount of pepper used.
Cocoa Powder, cayenne and jalapeños in a cake? Crazy fun, right?! It’s sure to heat things up! Can it get any better than that? No way! Wait! I take that back! Kyle’s Heavenly Hot Chocolate would pretty much top it off!
I don’t need to remind you to lick the whisk, do I?! Didn’t think so!
