Chocolate Wings

Mexican-inspired flippers featuring mole sauce that has a little unsweetened chocolate in it to make a rich-tasting deep brown sauce.


3 lbs. flippers
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/3 cups chicken stock
¼ cup tomato paste
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 square (1 ounce) unsweetened chocolate, chopped


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Arrange flippers in a large roasting pan in a single layer.  Roast 35 minutes, turning once, or until crispy.
Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat a drizzle of olive oil and sauté garlic just a few seconds.  Add chicken stock, tomato paste, cayenne and salt.  Bring to a boil and let simmer 10 minutes.  Add chocolate and stir just until melted.  Either pour over roasted wings or use on the side as a dipping sauce.  Serves 4.  I figure about ¾ of a pound of wings per serving (the bones take up a lot of weight).
