Spicy Beauty Chocolate Truffle

It’s November and the chilly weather is definitely in the air. So why not curl up with something sweet, and with a little heat?! Your cravings will be totally satisfied with my Spicy Beauty Chocolate Truffle Recipe, which is loaded with immunity-boosting chili and energy-opening cacao—you’re sure to see some heat on those cheeks! ;)

Why the heat?

Ancho Chiles

If you’re not an avid user of ancho chiles, here’s a little bit of history. Ancho chiles are a type of dried chile pepper that is commonly used in Mexican and Southwestern U.S. cuisine. It’s the dried version (of the ripe version) of the poblano pepper.

When the poblano is allowed to ripen, they will turn red and develop additional sweetness. This sweetness helps to balance out their mild heat. So to be clear—anchos are red while poblanos are green. Drying poblanos is done for the purpose of preserving them and can be reconstituted by soaking them in warm water. They can also be ground up or crushed, and added to your recipes, such as this one, where I’m using the powdered form.

These peppers fight inflammation, clear congestion and boost immunity, among many other things. Chili peppers are also an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene).

Ancho Chile Powder is a fun and spicy ingredient to add to all kinds of things, like your soups, salad dressings, and marinades—so why not desserts too?? This pepper will give any chocolate-y dessert or drink a bit of heat!
