I started off with some yummy Mercken’s Dark Chocolate. The real stuff, not the candy melts. The BAR at the bulk foods section. I melted and tempered the chocolate (for a great link, try this) by melting half a pound over a double boiler and then seeded it with the 4 ounces of unmelted chocolate. Stirring it until it’s melted and gains a beautiful sheen. I placed a piece of wax paper over a cookie sheet and poured out a three inch diameter shape. Then roll the lollipop stick in the bottom third and allow to lay flat.
Third: Chili Pepper Flakes and Cayenne
