Chili Chocolate Continues!
I have fallen in love with chili chocolate. It started with Ed's Real Scoop's Red Hot Chili Ice Cream, I've been obsessively craving the combination since. I love dark chocolate and heat so it only makes sense that my head would explode when I tried this combination. After trying some chili-chocolate concoctions I've learned that this delicious combination can be great or go oh-so-wrong. The key is to just have just enough spice so that you finish with the bite. You want to start with chocolate decadence and end with a sharp touch on your tongue. That's what makes these desserts special.
Anyways, a local fundraiser for prostate cancer was the perfect opportunity to try out a cake recipe.
Pulling out all the ingredients, I realized that I was missing something: espresso! My lovely friend gifted me a Starbucks card and this was the perfect opportunity to put it to good use. So I bundled up against the chilly & windy night and headed to the local Starbucks.
"1 cup of espresso please" - Me
"1 shot?" - Barista
"No, 1 cup...as in 250 mL." - Me
"..." - Barista
"5 shots of espresso, please" - Me
"Stories are gifts" :)
