Caramel, spicy chocolate cups


Chocolate cups filled with caramel sauceWhat’s better than black chocolate? Spicy, black chocolate cups, filled with caramel sauce.

They’re easy peasy to make and make the perfect homemade gift on these cold days. I love the combination of black chocolate and chili pepper, but you may omit it if you wish. They’re perfect even in the non-spicy version.

Are you ready to satisfy your sweet tooth, and share love and goodness around?
