In my opinion, this dessert is good enough to eat for unicorns that like their things spicy:)

   Honestly, when I first tried chili chocolate I was hooked it just highlights the flavor of cacao so beautifully and tickles your taste buds!

   These brownies have a perfect pink tint thanks to nutritious beetroot that also provides fudgy texture and if you ask me fudgy brownies is the way to go. Coconut icing is so healthy and at the same time so creamy and just perfect addition to hot chocolate layer! I colored mine with acerola powder and decorate them with flowers but its completely optional. I hope you can give them a try and you will like them as much as I do!
