Happy halloween, everyone!
This year, the haunted all hallows eve falls on one of my recipe days and I’m bringing back an old favourite to celebrate. A little something with a lot of heat, once posted on my (now abandoned) Imgur account, several years ago.
Yet these white chocolate and carolina reaper truffles never made it to my site properly. Only an 💀edited version💀, making use of Grim Reaper Foods‘ old chipotle and orange extract.
So, now that my skills and understanding have both had time to improve, I’m going to right that wrong and bring you an update on my favourite recipe for working with the current world record holder. And, more specifically, for enjoying its flavour at a somewhat more manageable heat.
Even if it is impossible to tame the reaper completely.
How’s it going, fellow fiery food fans? It’s been three weeks since world chocolate day, making this post quite disappointingly late, but here it is: The promised confection!
Not one, not two but three whole bars from Prices Spices, who’s delay in shipping them out to me apparently stems from a chronic inability to keep up with demand. So many people want Michael Price’s chocolate that he just can’t keep it in stock and he seems to have to make each batch to order.
So it would seem that these are some seriously well-liked bars. But is their popularity truly warranted?
Let’s find out!
Hi guys, it’s october again, so we’re going to be looking at a box of sweets.
Or rather, chocolates. Specifically, James’.
James Chocolates’ Smokey Chipotle Chocolate Chillies. A rather less prankworthy item than what I showed you last year but hopefully one that you’ll enjoy all the same.
It is, after all, a rather tried and tested flavour combination, used in my early cupcakes, my take on Dorset Chilli Shop’s lava cake and my christmas truffles. I know it works but does it work for James?
Today, I intend to find out.
Hey there chilli lovers, it’s the weekend again and, this week, I feel like paying a little tribute to one of my fellow bloggers.
Not a pure food blogger this time, like I’ve Got Cake’s Dana (who inspired my superhot brownie recipe), but one who I’m a big fan of all the same. One who’s stunning pictures of the australian landscape feed my love of bright colours through winter just as much as their recipes make me hungry throughout the rest of the year.
Today, we’re looking at Eat Live Escape and the simple tweaks that turn their recent Dark Cherry Chocolate Bark into an insanely hot, chilli lover’s treat.
Do be warned before I begin, though: This isn’t for the faint of heart or tongue. Today’s recipe uses one of the world’s hottest chillies and winds up reaching a crazy
that comes close to double the strength of my own hottest past recipes, let alone what restaurants will typically serve. And it’s not like you’ll just be putting a little bit on your meal like with a sauce, either.
If you’re sure you know what you’re getting into, feel free to click on through to the recipe but don’t say I didn’t warn you. For even most chilli fans, ELE’s original recipe will likely be more suitable. My chocolate bark really is just for the select few who eat things unreasonably hot.
Happy christmas eve, everyone, who wants chocolate?
This month I had chance to borrow a little bottle of extract off a friend but, like the Chilpōctli that we saw recently, it’s not a super hot one. In fact, it’s another from Grim Reaper Foods’ lineup, the same strength as their Raging Goblin.
Their chipotle and orange “Sepulchre”.
Perfect for spicing up milk chocolate truffles.
Hey everyone, it’s october. And you know what’s special about october?
It’s the month with halloween in it.
And yes, I know, halloween’s still almost a month away but what use is a holiday product review if it goes up on the holiday? I’m doing this early so that you have time to track down the items involved, should you feel the need.
Or maybe just to warn you what’s in store if you knock on my door this year.
Either way, I’m talking about gummy bears.
Three different brands and four or five different products, for a full comparison of every sort I’ve seen.
Hello again spice lovers, today we’re looking at the Melliculus range’s hottest and the first product I ever tried from The Chilli Alchemist; The Melliculus Reaper:
Hello again everyone, this week I’m going a little off schedule and bringing you an extra little bonus recipe. After all, what better way is there to celebrate the season of giving than with a free gift for you and a free shout out to one of my fellow food bloggers, Dana from I’ve Got Cake?
You see, I’m not bringing you my own creation today but rather adapting one of hers. With this, the 7-pod or 7-pot brainstrain:
According to various sources, this little sucker peaks at over 1.4 million scoville, making it the Guinness Book of Records’ third hottest chilli in the world but I cannot confirm with any degree of certainty whether that is the case. Guinness themselves don’t list any chilli that hasn’t once held the top spot.
So, we’ve had their medium green one and we’ve had their hot yellow top, this week it’s time for The Chilli Alchemist’s superhot red popping candy, right?
Before I bring you their red Melliculus Reaper, there’s another middle heat. Their original Melliculus, which I now call Melliculus Black.
Welcome back to another Chilli Alchemist popping candy review. This time, the Melliculus Aji, a more citrusy and slightly hotter take on the idea.
