Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here is an easy kick for your chocolate biscotti. They look ever so innocent with the dark chocolate color and hazelnut bits, but a subtle kick after a second or two will let you know things get more interesting here. While the pairing of hot chili and chocolate seems no longer exotic or strange with spicy chocolate truffles and hot chocolate mixes spiced with chili powder in chocolate shops, the little impact of gochujang (고추장; Korean hot pepper paste) in chocolate still comes unexpected at home.
