Why I chose this snack: I found this in my stocking last Christmas. Santa (ahem, Mom) thought it sounded weird so of course she bought it for me to try. I’m not a huge spicy person, but I have gotten better. So I’m all for trying spicy chocolate!
What worked: Not too bitter, not too sweet, not too spicy. It’s perfect. The triangular shape of the pieces are fun too. At first bite, it just tastes like regular chocolate, then the spice sneaks in and hits you in the back of your throat, then spreads all over your tongue. Could be a fun prank to play on someone ; )
What didn’t: I wouldn’t want to eat more than one piece. The more I eat the spicier it would get and less enjoyable my chocolate treat. But that’s just me. If you like the spice, this won’t be a problem for you.
Suggested uses: Chop these up and add them to homemade chocolate chip cookies with kick! Or add them to your breakfast pancakes, muffins or oatmeal. Possibly melt some into your coffee or hot chocolate.
