Condundrum in the world of recipes:
Hot spices blend with cocoa in a bar.
It’s less adored by some than canned green peas;
Left lonely – feared by taste buds it might scar.
Enjoyed by few, but now my cherished treat:
Cool chocolate now packs a bit of heat.
How hot it is depends upon how sweet
Or spicy the mix the peppers complete.
Can any other sweet right now compare?
Outnumbered by concoctions far more tame,
Loved only by those souls who are aware
Amazing taste awaits, for few are game.
The masses deem it not a worthy lure:
Ensconced inside my fridge, it rests secure.
