For those of us with an unquenchable thirst for hot sauce, finding odd food items to add hot sauce to is a fun adventure. From meats to veggies to pasta, we put it on everything! In this article, however, we will be mainly focusing on the sweeter side of the spectrum with more mundane things, such as ice cream and Mayan mochas, as well as the more eclectic, like chocolate fondue and stuffed pears.

Ice cream is often used to dull the heat of capsaicin, so why not combine the two for a classic fire and ice treat? You can find a recipe for a tasty treat flavored by the popular Sriracha hot sauce here, which is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

Chocolate and spice make the perfect combination, second only to chocolate and espresso. Therefore, the utmost perfection should be a combination of the three, should it not? This is where the Mayan mocha comes in. It’s mocha with a pinch of cinnamon and a dash or two of your favorite hot sauce! If you’re a fan of the coffee chain Peet’s Coffee and Tea, you’ll recognize this fast favorite.


In the same vein as Mayan mochas, some hot sauce fans add hot sauce to chocolate fondue to give it an extra special bite. All you need are some strawberries for dipping and you have the perfect food for a date night! (Or for a night of Netflix by yourself, it’s a tasty treat anytime.)

To top all of this sweetness off, we have a spicy twist on an elegant treat, the stuffed pear. This classy dessert gets roasted in more than one way in this particularly odd recipe that looks absolutely stunning!

From simple to elegant, hot sauce desserts are certain to spice things up. These ideas and recipes prove that hot and sweet are not mutually exclusive, but instead play rather nicely together.
