Sweet HEAT: Hot and Spicy Desserts

Burn after eating? Sugar and spice and everything nice? Sweet, hot... and spicy? Flambé?

I'm all fired up to host this month's Sugar High Friday dessert blogging event:  Sweet HEAT.

Share your dessert and its story as you interpret the theme.

Sugar High Friday was created by Jennifer Hamilton of the Domestic Goddess


Need ideas?
  •  Heat could be the way you make the dessert, it doesn't necessarily have to be part of the flavor. Literalists however, need not apply:  I would guess something like hot apple pie won't win you any fans.
  •  Popular Plates Magazine had an end of June issue devoted to fiery foods. The issue had this article on the origins of chili peppers. The dessert section of the issue had recipes for Strawberries with Tex-Mex Tequila and Black Pepper, Chile-Chocolate Pretzels, Peanut-Chile Cheesecake, Habanero Mango-Walnut Cookies and more. Just some concepts...

  • Maybe the heat is part of your story about the dessert. Is there a dessert that means "romantic evening" for both you and your sweetheart, or perhaps a dish you recall sparked a huge fight some years back? Entertain us and demonstrate your interpretive creativity.
