    Needed a fun, easy, teen friendly dessert for a party. This one worked great! I actually dipped plain tortilla chips into the chocolate and allowed to harden. Delicious and the kids snatched them up.

    What a delicious dip with just the right hint of spice! I'm not a huge fan of mangoes, but any fruit would taste wonderful with this dip. I had a hard time cutting the mangoes to look as perfect as the picture, but the taste made up for my lack of presentation!
