    Lorianne1's Note:

    Found recipe in Rachel Ray's magazine. Very easy to make and very good. The cayenne pepper really brings out the flavor of the chocolate. I buy bittersweet chocolate and pumpkin seeds (pepitas) at Trader Joe's at very reasonable prices. Number of serving is approximate--depends on how big of pieces you break it into.

      oh yum! this turned out so good! And it's easy to make, as well. You really can't beat that. I also added some cinnamon to it as well as coconut to half. This will be made again for sure. Thanks for posting.

      Oh so yummy! I love the light crunch of the pumpkin seeds, and of course I love bittersweet chocolate! Thank you! Made for the Best of 2008 Cookbook tag.

      Simple and delicious. I already had a bunch of pepitas on hand and was looking for ways to use them, and this is a great way! I followed the directions, microwaveing my chocolate, as I have no double boiler. Thanks for sharing!
