SPICY AZTEC CHOCOLATE.
Dark chocolate with a hint of cayenne pepper and cinnamon. Gotta love that sweet and spicy combination. But the most pleasant surprise inside?
Then, while in the Louisville area a couple weekends ago with my parents, I spotted these Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed & Sea Salt Bark Thins™ at Earth Fare.
Creating my own spicy, chocolatey, pumpkiny treat became high on my priority list at that point.
A merger of the Spicy Aztec Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed Bark was born. I present to you….Spicy Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Seed Bark.
This recipe is so stinkin’ easy. If you like to give food gifts to coworkers, friends, family, or are already thinking about Halloween party treats to make, keep this recipe on file. If you’re not feeling extra spicy, just cut the amount of cayenne pepper in half. I found raw pumpkin seeds at Trader Joe’s, but have also seen them at Whole Foods and in the natural foods section at Kroger. I just love the crunch they add!
