Mystery Recipes Revealed 

Very early this morning, I listed the ingredients for the three chocolate desserts served at our party yesterday. It should not surprise those who have read parts I and II of the Music and Cats 'Let Them Eat Cake' series to learn that all three of the mystery recipes are taken from the pages of Maida Heatter's Book of Great Chocolate Desserts.

Mystery Recipe #1: Many people do not think of pepper when they think of chocolate. Central Americans have have been combining chocolate, cinnamon and pepper for centuries, to great effect, as in these Mexican Chocolate Icebox Cookies.

Mystery Recipe #2: The prize goes to Wavybrains, who correctly pegged these as brownies. They are Ginger Brownies, a variant on Heatter's Black Pepper Brownies.

Mystery Recipe #3: Paula guessed correctly! These four ingredients are all that you need for Chocolate Mousse Heatter.

Show me the chocolate recipes!
