Tomorrow's disaster--

So for Sparrow's movie night tomorrow, I'm going to try to make cheesecake with a habanero fudge sauce. This has the potential to go wrong in bold new directions, since I've never made cheesecake and really have no sense for how fatal habaneros can be, and the majority of the attendees don't know to be careful when I bring something to a potluck with a big grin.

I think what I'll do is make the chocolate sauce, and then on the side blend four peppers or so into a half-cup of evaporated milk, and add the milk in by the teaspoon until a desired level of burn is achieved, and then maybe add a half-teaspoon more. Then rinse out the blender before it melts.

Wow. You really do use your cooking as a weapon! Good luck. ;)

My friend Harmoni is allergic to a few things... because of this, we call banana nut bread a double-Harmoni killer because both bananas and nuts are on the list. We keep trying to find foods that contain the right ingreedients that could perform a combo-death on her, just in our spare time. (After all, combo moves score more points!)

So, there have been a few times in which it's not a matter of "Cake or Death", but rather "Cake and Death!"

Hmmm...Circus Peanuts! They're peanut-shaped marshmallows flavored with artificial banana flavor :) Talk about a near-brush with death...

Really? I don't think I've had the pleasure of banana flavored peanuts! Do they sell them anywhere in Austin?

Oh, the most recent addition to the list of items that contain bananas and peanuts is a specific IHOP Stuffed French Toast that Jen had last night.

No, no--Circus Peanuts are those horrid little marshmallow "peanuts" died lurid orange. But, point of fact, they use banana artificial flavoring, because peanut flavoring breaks down too quickly.

Oh dear god! Why would you want to mix chocolate with peppers???

Because it's delicious! Chipoltle goes really well with chocolate flavor-wise, and habanero has virtually no actual flavor, but it adds burn--also, it's a surprise, since chocolate and spice still aren't combined too much.

I saw all manner of spicy chocolate at Whole Foods last night, including a bar they called "Asian Pearl" or something like that - it had (among other things) chocolate and wasabi. *grin*

I applaud your creativity and boldness.

I also want pictures of the victims' faces.

Chocolate and Wasabi? I'm really having a hard time with that combination!

Ooohhh...I wouldn't mind guineapigging that one.

Turns out I'm not going to have the time today, so you may still have an opportunity :)

I'll bite it. Doesn't seem like it's too far off from molé, which has chili peppers and chocolate in it. :)

S'truth, though chocolate has a background flavor in Mole, from what I've seen.

Yeah, but it's always been a little too complicated/expensive for me whenever I was in the mood to. *shrug* but yes, cheesecake *is* pretty amazing stuff.
