Hot Choc?

Okay, fine. If I have to be here then I'm going to have one of these warming Chili Hot Chocolates while the snow falls down around me!
This recipe makes for 10 servings, So who would like to join me?!

Chilli Hot Chocolate

Naughty, delicious and with a hint of fire, just what you need after a chilly walk.

  • Serves: 4
  • Takes: 10mins


  • 750ml (1¼ pints) skimmed milk
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 red chillies, halved and deseeded
  • 100g (3½oz) dark chocolate, grated
  • 25g (1oz) demerara sugar

What to do

  • Place the milk in a saucepan with the cinnamon stick and chillies. Carefully bring to a very gentle simmer for one minute. Take off the heat and leave to one side for 5 minutes so the flavours infuse.
  • Reheat, then remove the cinnamon, and reserve the chillies on one side for decoration later. Add the chocolate and stir in until it melts, add the sugar and mix.
  • Serve up in warming mugfuls. If you want to go for total luxury and a real one-off treat then top with a spoon of whipped cream, a dusting of chocolate and decorate with a half chilli – to give your family and friends a hint of what they are in for!

If you can get hold of Lindt's Chilli Chocolate over here (not the chilli filled one, but the hard chocolate) it is WILDLY good.
