It feels like a season of challenges around here. And with our recent “cold snap”, I found the perfect dessert to heat things up.
After Marx Foods invited me to participate in their Blogger Chile Recipe Challenge, I immediately set to brainstorming. Using some of their dried Mulato Chiles, I created these Sweet Heat-Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Everyone loves a good chocolate chip cookie, right? And in the South, spicy reigns. So, pairing chocolate with a mild chile like the Mulato is making magic. The demure heat starts to build and comes to a point once you’ve finished that last bite of cookie. They’re spicy, salty and sweet, all rolled into one yummy little treat.
Don’t forget to vote for my cookies in the Reader Poll on the Marx Foods Blog from September 13th through the 16th!! 🙂
