Wonderfully different. After seeing the mixing of chocolate and chili powder in the movie "Chocolate" I was intrigued by this recipe. At first I wasn't sure what I thought of the taste, but the chili powder really compliments the flavor of the chocolate, and I kept going back for another taste and another and another and... you get the picture. ;) Anyhow, I made a basic, single layer chocolate cake (Better Homes and Gardens version) and served the slices in a puddle of this sauce with a sprinkling of cinnamon on top. The family loved it. DH and DS ate two helpings. Next time I might try topping the cake with cinnamon whipped cream. Anyway... This is one for the cookbook. THANKS!!!

Really wonderful. It transforms plain old ice cream into some special. I sprinkled candied pecans on top and some real whipped cream and it was a dessert worthy of a restaurant. Thanks.
