Sweet Treats

22 Feb


I have been craving chocolate something chronic lately and after getting a bit experimental in the kitchen and making some Spiced Orange Hot Chocolate I thought it would be fun to make a chilli infused chocolate sauce. A while back chilli (or chili or chile?) chocolate was a bit of a culinary craze and although I love anything spicy and chocolate I was too chicken to try it. But times have changed and I have decided to become more creative in the kitchen, alas this chilli chocolate sauce was born. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

What you will need:
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate, roughly chopped
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons Dutch cocoa
2 teaspoons chilli powder (adjust to suit your tastes, I like spicy)

What to do:
On a low heat combine all your ingredients together in a heavy bottomed saucepan. Gently stir until your chocolate has melted and all your ingredients have been well combined. Remove your saucepan from the heat once just combined to avoid burning. You can serve this sauce warm or chilled. I poured mine over some vanilla ice cream and added a few coconut flakes. Delicious. Store in an airtight container or jar in the fridge for around 10 days.
