Chocolate Covered Jalapeno Peppers Recipe
- 20 jalapeno peppers
- 14 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
- 3 tablespoons Crisco
- 6 ounces white chocolate
- Heat a small pot to low heat and add semi-sweet chocolate with 2 tablespoons Crisco. It is best to use a double-boiler for this, but if you don't have one, be sure to keep the heat low. Stir often until chocolate is melted and smooth.
- Dip each jalapeno pepper into the chocolate and coat each side.
- Set the chocolate jalapeno peppers on wax paper to cool. Refrigerate to speed up the process.
- Heat a separate small pot to low heat and add white chocolate with 1 tablespoon Crisco. Again, a double boiler is best, but if you don't have one, keep the heat low and stir often until melted and smooth.
- Hold each jalapeno pepper over the white chocolate, and with a small spoon, drizzle white chocolate over the jalapeno in a small but steady stream. Be creative with your designs.
- Set the jalapenos on wax paper to cool.
