About Me

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog! My name is Maria and Hot Lollies is where I’ll share my obsession with everything hot and spicy! Years ago, make that decades ago, I fell in love with spicy foods and today I just can’t get enough of it. After a trip to Mexico while in college, I stumbled upon spicy Mexican candy and fell in love! I started scouring the web & bodegas (Latin grocery stores) for any spicy candy I could find. When I couldn’t find a product I liked I decided to make my own. I started making spicy lollipops infused with some of the hottest chile peppers and currently sell them at my Etsy Shop. I’ve learned so much over the years about growing chiles, cooking with them, and discovering their benefits that I had to find a way to share all that information with you.

I launched Hot Lollies to fill that void. So join me here for spicy recipes, food events, great product finds and a peek into my travels in search of the next hot bite. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and find content that inspires you to add more spice to your life!
