My friend Dorthy told me about a candy she had some time back and I just had to do the best I could to replicate it, and I must say – success!
This seemingly innocent chocolate candy is not what it seems. Put a piece of this delisih candy in your mouth. In a few seconds you begin to feel the popping on your tongue and the inside of your cheeks.
Then a moment or so after that, the heat from the chipotle hits the back of your throat and warms it nicely. It’s fun, groovy and a perfect treat with a little trick. I’ll show you how to make this SIMPLE candy for not only Halloween, but it’s a great April Fools trick too, just change the sprinkles!

repeat until the chocolate is melted And completely smooth. Mix in the pop rocks.Mix in the chipotle powder.
Evenly cover with the sprinkles.
Allow chocolate to set up in the fridge, or counter if it is cool enough.
When the chocolate is firm, break into pieces. Eat within 2 days for best effect from the Pop Rock candy; the effect diminishes the longer it sits.
