Recipe by cpbaker
READY IN: 1hr 5mins
YIELD: 60 pieces


  • 200
    g butter (7 1/8 oz)
  • 200
    g good quality unsweetened dark chocolate (7 1/8 oz)
  • 250
    g sugar (8 7/8 oz)
  • 1
    tablespoon flour
  • 1 12
    teaspoons chili powder (adjust to your taste and to the strength of your chili powder)


  • Pre-heat your oven to 400°F.
  • Melt the butter with the chocolate in a small saucepan or in a bowl in the microwave. If melting in the microwave, be sure to do it slowly, blending with a spoon between each pass.
  • Transfer the melted chocolate and butter into a mixing bowl and add the sugar, stirring it in with a wooden spoon.
  • Let the mixture cool a little.
  • Add the eggs one by one, mixing well with the spoon after each addition.
  • Add a rounded tablespoon of flour and mix well.
  • Stir in the chili powder.
  • Pour the dough into non-stick or silicone petit four molds, and bake for ten to twelve minutes. The top should look set, but the inside should still be on the soft side.
  • Let the the mini bites cool down enough to unmold them, then turn them out on a rack to cool completely while you cook the other batches. Store in a plastic container, refrigerate, and take out about an hour prior to serving the next day.
