Chocolate Chili Pancakes

With my latest visit to Texas, I couldn’t help but notice something really popular there…Combining the flavor of chocolate and chili pepper.  At first I was a tad nervous to give this a whirl but I quickly lightened up…because if I didn’t like it, I wouldn’t share it and I would make something else and you never would have known I tried it.  Isn’t life easy?

Chocolate Chili Pancakes

When googling around, I noticed that most “chocolate chili” breakfasts were about the same recipe and were paired with a raspberry topping.  Well I didn’t have raspberries so I decided to nix that and work with what I had on hand.

Ingredients:

2/3 cup flour

¼ cup dark cocoa powder (I used hersheys dark cocoa powder)

1/8 cup stevia

1 egg

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon red chili flakes (I don’t why I even had those just hanging out at my house…the more you add the more spicy it will be)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

½-1 cup milk (water works too) depending on how thick you like your pancakes.  I generally use about 2/3 but don’t really measure.

Directions:

Mix dry ingredients to wet ingredients and cook on your griddle at 350.

 

My verdict?

Well obviously if I’m sharing it with you I enjoyed it.  I wasn’t sure how I’d enjoy the sweet and savory combination but let’s just say…I do.

 

Question for you:  Ever had the combination of chocolate and chili?

  1. At the restaurant I work at, we change our ice cream all the time. It’s 100% homemade so it’s all unique flavors and stuff. One of my favorites is when they make chocolate chipotle ice cream. Sweet with a little spice. Its AMAZING.

  2. I first came across this combo in hot chocolate form and while the thought of it kind of skeeved me out at first, I’m glad I tried it because it was surprisingly good. I’ve been meaning to try it in bar form, so thanks for reminding me that I need to pick up that xocolatl Dagoba bar that’s been eyeing me in the store for a while now.

  3. I was just discussing Mexican chocolate with my brother and the fact I’m scared to try it because I don’t want it to ruin my love for chocolate. Hahaha. He said it’s definitely worth it but I don’t know. I like spicy and I like chocolate but I don’t know about the mix. We shall see if I put on my big girl pants sometime soon.

  4. Such an intriguing recipe…I would love to try it sometime, since I have never really tasted the chocolate/chili combination before–at least not in pancakes.

  5. very interesting! I’ve seem that chocolate chili bars are becoming very popular..leave it to you to put it in pancake form! 😀 you’re so creative!

  6. Mmmm, those sound so good! I love chili chocolate (or whatever you call the bar that’s spicy), so these are right down my alley. And I definitely have red pepper flakes in my spice cabinet. 🙂

  7. YESSS I’m so glad you tried this!!! My dad brought back dark chocolate flavored with chili when he went to Argentina on business….omg it’s amazing. chocolate with a punch! I love this recipe cuz you can add as much or as little red pepper as you want….I would be so tempted to prank someone and dump in a ton hahaha.
