Quick Dark Chocolate Dessert Idea

rockycat | Oct 29, 2009 06:41 AM

One of my child's teachers has been teasing/hinting very strongly about wanting the kids' dark chocolate from their trick-or-treat bags. We know he's just pulling the kids' legs, but I thought it would be nice if I could knock out some type of dark chocolate treat for him.

If I had time I wouldn't mind tempering chocolate and doing a nice candy but right now my primary requirements include not being too time-intensive and not requiring me to buy many expensive ingredients. I have a well-stock pantry, especially when it comes to baking ingredients, so tossing something exotic my way isn't a problem. Also, my definition of not-too-complicated is very broad.

I was thinking of something that might go Mexican-style, maybe include chili or smoked paprika, something along those lines. Dark chocolate is key, though. I don't especially care if it's Halloween-themed, either. And, of course, it needs to be transportable to school.

Can anyone throw some fast ideas at me?
