Are you a spicy food fiend? Are you looking for a culinary adventure to impress new friends? Are you interested in the irony of spicy desserts? Or are you looking for a new comfort food? Whatever your reason is, welcome.  From life to food, when something becomes boring, we say “it needs a bit more spice”. Thing is, spices are more than that.

While not a famous trick when it comes to desserts, adding spices actually adds depth to your sweet treats. Take the famous salted chocolate for example: I was apprehensive to try “salty chocolate” at first, but when I did, I noticed that the salt actually brought out the chocolate-y taste, which is good news for a chocoholic like me.

Apart from enhancing the flavours you love, spices also bring a healthy dimension to desserts. Often demonised because the sugar “makes you fat”, desserts are often considered a naughty choice. Well, I think it’s time to change that. From reducing inflammation, preventing cancer and raising dopamine levels, spices bring a lot more than taste.

With this in mind, I have compiled a list of delectable spicy treats for you. Like your girl, these desserts are sweet, spicy (and hot!), a little bit naughty and a whole lot of good.
