Spicy Chocolate Sauce

| Last Updated: August 17, 2019 | , , ,

Drizzle or dip, oh so good.

Rich dark chocolate and spicy cayenne collide in this simple spicy chocolate sauce. Try it drizzled on vanilla ice cream or as a dipping sauce for fresh fruits, pastries, and churros. it’s smooth meets earthy meets spice.

Want it a little more smoky? Try chipotle powder instead of cayenne. It makes for an excellent end-of-BBQ dessert treat.
