For those who don’t want to tackle making candy, I’ve included a recipe for a hot and sweet chocolate cookie. The heat of these cookies is dictated by the heat of the chile, and sometimes I substitute chopped jalapeños for the green chile for a more fiery treat.
This sauce is thought to be of Tunisian origin, but is found throughout all of North Africa and the Middle East under various names and spellings. It is used to flavor couscous and grilled dishes such as brochettes, and also as a relish with salads. Cover this sauce with a thin film of olive oil and it will keep up to a couple of months in the refrigerator.
