My 1st attempt at Mexican Chocolate Bark
Posted 18 December 2011 - 12:20 AM
Here is what I ended up with:
Mexican Chocolate Bark (Bonnie's Version)
12 oz. dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup roasted, salted pistachios
1/4 cup roasted, salted pepitos
1 tspn of instant coffee granules
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tspn + of dried ground chile peppers, hot
1 tspn of dried ground chile peppers, mild
Melted the chips in a double boiler, stirred everything else in, spread onto a wax paper covered baking sheet, and placed in freezer until set. Then, just broke apart like a peanut brittle. Stored in refrigerator.
I made two batches. One came out hotter than the other, even though I did everything the same. Go figure. Both were pretty tasty, and a bit addictive. Probably a good thing it got packaged up, or I would have eaten way too much! Curious to see what the family thinks about chocolate with a kick

I was afraid if I called it Chile Chocolate Bark it would scare off some of the more spice-phobic family members. By calling it Mexican Chocolate Bark, it hints at whats in it, but doesn't spell it out. I want them to at least try a bite of it.

Couldn't really tell if they liked it, or just found it intriguing ...

Hmmm ... wonder how it would go over at a church potluck?

I may wait until Valentine's to make another batch of the chocolate bark. I tried a thumbprint cookie a while back that used Habanero Gold Jelly, but it was really more of a cheese biscuit, which I didn't really think went with the jelly. For my next pepper enhanced dessert, I'm going to use a regular thumbprint jam cookie recipe that uses more of a butter cookie dough.
