I'm stumped

I can't figure out how to Google this.

Alex and the girls got me some unusual chocolates for my birthday. The lemon-pepper one was quite good - more lemon than pepper, and good chocolate wrapped around it all.

But the chili pepper one is too spicy. I like hot food, but this is a little too much to be enjoyable. So I figured maybe there was something I could do with it - use it in a recipe or combine it with something or something.

But when I try to Google it I get chili recipes that call for chocolate, or gourmet places selling chili chocolates, which I don't need any more of (right now).

The closest I've seen to a suggestion was grating some on top of a mug of hot chocolate, which I can definitely try (they got me gourmet hot chocolate mix too). On my own, all I came up with was maybe combining it with some bread, but all I have on hand is regular sandwich bread from the grocery store, which I don't think will do it justice.

Any suggestions?

E.T.A. Writing that made me curious, and the upshot of that curiosity is that we can confidently add "get over myself and try again" as a viable option.

(Oh, and too? Five minutes short of 24 hours after yesterday's post, we have our first "lawn shrimp" Googler stopping by. Don't worry! They're harmless!)

try these recipes - just use the chocolate instead of chocolate and chili separately.

hahahaha -- I am right this very minute going to google "tongue worms" and see if I can find you ;)

Wow, other bear. Good work, and good idea.

I may not have enough of this bar left to do any of those, but I definitely have access to more chocolate (plain) and chili powder...I've got my eye on that brownie recipe, and know just the friend to share them with.

Hey Carroll, why don't you try doing an image search on tongue worms?

Mmm chocolate chili brownies, sounds like a good one.

Ask the wiki about Cymothoa exigua. I don't think it's what you mean by tongue worm, but you're going to need to know about it.

Yeah, all I meant by tongue worm, actually, was "Whoa. No need to read any farther on this page."

But really. Thanks.

Y'all, don't click this link. Just don't.
