Sweet Heat, Chocolate Chili

Melissa Buchanan-Smith


Sweet, spicy and savory! Don't let the amount of ingredients scare you. Many are items you already have on hand.

Lindt chili bar at my store is on the candy aisle and not the baking aisle. I use a couple cubes. Can always add more. This adds heat and sweat.
