DIRECTIONS

  • Add chili pepper to 2 cups boiling water.
  • Cook until liquid is reduced to 1 cup.
  • Remove chili pepper; strain for stray seeds, and set aside.
  • In a medium-size saucepan, combine cream or milk, vanilla bean and cinnamon stick.
  • Heat over medium flame until bubbles appear around the edge.
  • Reduce heat to low.
  • Add chocolate and sugar or honey.
  • Whisk occasionally until chocolate is melted and sugar dissolves.
  • Turn off heat.
  • Remove vanilla bean and cinnamon stick, stir in ground almonds or hazelnuts.
  • Carefully add the chili pepper infusion, a little at a time, making sure the flavour isn't too strong.
  • If chocolate is too thick, thin with a little more milk.
