Method


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Evenly space dried fruit on the baking sheet in a single layer.

Chop or finely grind chili peppers using a mortar and pestle. Try combining various chilies for your own signature flavor.

To melt the chocolate, place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat in 30 second increments until just melted, stirring throughout. 

Dip each piece of dried fruit halfway into the chocolate, allowing any excess to drip off before placing back on the baking sheet. Once all pieces have been dipped, sprinkle all with the ground chili pepper & flake salt to taste.

Refrigerate until hardened, about 10 minutes, and enjoy!
