When I was a teenager, I worked at a candy store in my local mall. But it wasn’t just any candy store; it was a chocolate candy store very popular during the holidays. As you could imagine, Easter was one of the busiest times of the year. There were chocolate eggs with filling of all sorts: caramel, marshmallow, truffles, cream, and coconut, to name a few. But one that surprised me was a cajeta-filled chocolate egg. A few years later, I started to experiment with this very idea every Easter. In my version, I added a little bit of chipotle powder to give it a bit of a kick. And the results are surprisingly amazing; I mean, chocolate, spice, and cajeta!
