Salt and Pepper Chocolate Bark

A totally sensual sweet!  Semi-sweet chocolate laced with cayenne pepper and topped with coarse sea salt.  Only three ingredients.


1 1/2 lbs. semi-sweet chocolate (two 12-oz. bags)

2 level teaspoons ground cayenne pepper

1 1/2 - 2 teaspoons coarse sea salt


Melt chocolate in a double boiler over hot, but not boiling water.  Stir in cayenne pepper.  Allow to cool down until tepid.  Line a baking sheet with waxed paper and spread chocolate about 1/8" thick.  Sprinkle salt on top.  Refrigerate 40 minutes, or until firm.  Break into pieces to serve.  Store, covered, at room temperature.  Note:  If you love hot food, feel free to add more cayenne!
