How to make it

  • In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add chili pepper to boiling water.
  • 2. Cook until liquid is reduced to 1 cup. Remove chili pepper; strain water and set aside.
  • 3. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine cream or milk, vanilla bean and cinnamon stick until bubbles appear around the edge.
  • 4. Reduce heat to low; add chocolate and sugar or honey, whisking occasionally until chocolate is melted and sugar dissolves.
  • 5. Turn off heat, remove vanilla bean and cinnamon stick.
  • 6. Add chili-infused water, a little at a time, tasting to make sure the flavor isn't too strong. If chocolate is too thick, thin with a little more milk.
  • 7. Serve in small cups or glass mugs and offer ground almonds or hazelnuts and whipped cream. Garnish each serving with a cinnamon stick.
  • -------------------
  • For a hot chocolate with a little more "heat", top with whipped cream and sprinkle a small bit of ground sweet ancho chili pepper over the whipped cream.
  • -------------------
  • Use kitchen gloves when cutting the chile pepper in half and removing seeds.
