Chocolate Chicken Wings???

Thai Taste cooks them up once a year for the 'Taste of Chocolate.'

Chocolate chicken wings? No, we aren’t making this dish up.

chocolate chicken wingsThai Taste in Carbondale, Ill. cooks up the uncommon combination every February (fitting since chocolate is already on everyone’s mind because of that certain holiday full of hearts).

These chicken wings take center stage at the Taste of Chocolate, a fundraiser for the women’s center. In fact, the appetizer is one of the first treats to be devoured each year.

Head Chef Paris Siulua Jr. gave Heartland Weekend a closer look, as well as some tips for cooking with chocolate, but he wouldn’t go so far as revealing his perfected recipe.

The good and bad news: you have just one chance to sample these chocolate chicken wings this year on Friday, Feb. 9 at the Taste of Chocolate.

There you can sample all sorts of chocolate-themed delicacies, all while supporting a good cause.
