Chilli Chocolates

Ingredients

500g dark chocolate

80ml cream

1 teaspoon chilli powder or to taste

40g butter

Preparation method

1. Chop 2/3 of the dark chocolate coarsely.

2. Bring the cream and chilli powder to the boil. Add dark chocolate and melt while stirring to a smooth mixture. Add butter and stir again.

3. Pour the mixture into a buttered rectangular baking dish, and leave to set completely.

4. Remove the set chocolate from the dish and cut out desired shapes.

5. Melt the remaining dark chocolate and leave to cool again. Coat the cut-out chocolates with the melted chocolate and let them set.

I found this recipe online after buying Lindt dark chocolate and chilli. I think the two go very well together, this recipe is simple and delicious. :D

Hot Chocolate. :lol: I wonder why they call them chillis when they're hot? The chocolates sound lovely, but I get a bit carried away when I start eating chocolate. Likewise biscuits. :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

Perhaps you should try chilli flapjacks, just use your favourite flapjack recipe and add some chilli to taste - flakes seem better than powder :D

Hot Chocolate...why didn't I think of that? :lol:

I too get carried away with chocolates and become a total piggy when I bake biscuits, they never last. :D

Now I will have to bake some hot chocolate biscuits. :mrgreen: I'll let you know if they are good, might even pass a few down the wire. :wink:

I bought hubby an Easter agg the other day in the Thornton’s sale, he enjoyed a taste of it. :lol: :oops:

I will send you a chocolate down the line, it'll be shaped like a little apple and have a soft centre, you may have to drink it with a straw by the time it gets to you though. :mrgreen:

apples, do you like marzipan? I love almond marzipan and buy a block, cut it into pieces and cover the pieces of marzipan in dark chocolate. Then on top of the choccy bites I crumble Parma Violets and let them set. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM :D

I love marzipan Will. Anything almondy is lovely. Marzipan will be lovely covered in dark chocolate. Some friends gave us a tin of biscuits for Easter, and I've eaten them all myself. :oops: It's a good job I don't put on any weight. The little chocolate shaped like an apple will be lovely when it arrives. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

Aw, isn't that lovely. I think maybe an apple shaped chocolate with a nutty centre would be more appropriate. :)
Keep calm and carry on.

It's really awful combination you have chosen. I don't like this combination. Instead of chilli if you have tried nut than this recipe will become more delicious!!!
