The ancient Olmecs and Mayans loved combining cacao and chili pepper in their sacred chocolate drinks, and sometimes they would even add honey or agave. I just attended a David Wolfe lecture in Seattle, and he says he loves the combination of cacao nibs/beans, honey and cayenne. So this is a tribute to Mr. Wolfe....

Repeat the mantra: Cacao & Chili, Chili & Cacao.

This sounds as lot like this Dagoba organic chocolate bar I had a while ago (oops, not raw) that was like 70% cacao and had nibs, chilis, maca, and nutmeg in it. It was kind of weird having spice in my chocolate, but I liked it. My dad didn't, though! lol
