Mocha Spice Souffle with Chocolate and Chili

GNMHealth's picture
Spiciness and chocolate may be trendy, but the Mexican cuisine has embraced it in the form of Mole sauce for a long time, and xocolatl ("Bitter Water") goes all the way back to the Aztec empire! In the spirit of "everything old is new again," Healthy Helpings TV's host Michelle Koen brings a dessert that packs a subtle, delicate tingle behind a fluffy cloud of chocolate decadence.
