  • 2.Coarsely chop the chocolate.
  • 3.Chop/crush peanuts. (You can put the peanuts in a bag and use a rolling pin to crush them.)
  • 4.Melt chocolate in a double boiler, stirring until completely smooth. Stir in cinnamon and cayenne until completely mixed.
  • 5.Using a spatula, spread chocolate mixture evenly on the parchment paper.
  • 6.Sprinkle with sea salt, and then crushed peanuts.
