Mexican Chocolate Brownie Bites

Alright, time to put your big girl boots on. We are wading into seriousness here.

Mexican Chocolate Brownie Bites (16)a  I consider myself a pretty normal person. Ha! Not. Most of the time, I will go for normal chocolate combos like peanut butter/ coffee/ strawberry. But just to keep everyone on their toes, BAM! Mexican! Chile pepper! Weren’t expecting that, were you?

These are exactly the type of thing I would serve at my fancy-pants restaurant in New York City… if I had a restaurant…if I lived in New York.

The contrast is beautiful. Deep, super-dark chocolate offset by light-as-air whipped cream with unexpected hints of spice. Just to keep everyone guessing. Unless they guess something non-chocolate, in which case…they will be wrong.
