  • 6 oz dark chocolate
  • 3 oz semi-sweet chocolate
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp cayenne
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp pepitas {unsalted}


  • Prepare a 9x13 baking pan by lining with parchment paper. I taped mine in, however a parchment-lined baking sheet will also work.
  • Coarsely chop the chocolate.
  • Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, stirring frequently until completely smooth. Stir in the cinnamon and cayenne until completely incorporated.
  • Spread chocolate out on parchment paper, using a spatula. Mine did not quite fit the 9x13 inch pan, but it was close.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt and pepitas.
  • Allow to harden for 1-2 hours {cooling in the fridge is the best option}.
  • Cut into pieces and store in a sealed container in the refrigerator.
