Candied Jalapeño

MADE BY LITTLE BIRD CHOCOLATES IN QUEENS, NEW YORK

MOUTH SAYS...

Holy jalapeño! These hotties are hand-cut and then candied in sugar. Take a bite – first, you'll be hit with the sweetness, but keep chewing and enjoy a slow, steady, spicy burn.

Fun fact: Sara from Little Bird Chocolates, based out of Queens, New York, made these while in a "how-about-I-candy-everything-in-the-house" phase. She didn't want her jalapeños to go bad, so she candied them!

Sara says these bad boys serve as the perfect cocktail garnish. Drop one into a Bloody Mary or top off a margarita. You can also try baking them into cornbread, or slip a pinch into a warm biscuit. Use these as a totally out-there ice cream sundae topper.
