Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Infused With Chocolate

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"Butternut squash roasted with chocolate, chili peppers, and other goodness pureed down to a soup. Even my squash-hating sweetie enjoyed it. Garnish with chocolate chips, chocolate shavings, sourdough crostini, a drizzle of maple syrup, or even a bit of light cream."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

This was good soup. For those wondering about chocolate in the soup, think about mole sauce.. that also has chocolate and is very tasty. I forgot to buy a red chili so i added red chili flakes..
