Chocolate Cayenne Lime Cookie Cake
This spicy and sweet cookie cake is flavorful and fun, but also happens to be vegan and gluten-free. Start making the vanilla frosting before you make the cake because it takes about 4 hours for the base to set up in the fridge. Recipe courtesy of Allison Lubert, Baking You Happy.

Chocolate-Ginger Martini with Cayenne-Spiked Rim
Don’t think this martini is going to be syrupy-sweet! It’s off-dry — intensely flavorful, luscious, and only sweet enough to be impossibly decadent. The dark chocolate cayenne-spiked rim brings a touch of spicy heat, making you want to take each sip from a new spot on the rim (at least that’s what my husband, Marc, does eagerly every time I hand him one of these!) — and the ginger liqueur and lemon bitters make this cocktail taste as exotic as it looks. To complete the experience, serve them with these chocolate madeleines. They too are sweetened with restraint, so the pair could even be served before dinner.
