Chilli Hot Chocolate

My oldest and bestest friend Rachel brought me back some very dark chocolate from her holidays this summer. It's flavoured with chilli, and good grief if has a kick to it. You don't feel it at first but it catches you right at the back of the throat, it's fantastic. I was thinking of possible recipe ideas and i tried melting a few squares in a saucepan very gently, adding some cinnamon and soya milk and creating a chilli hot chocolate (i enjoy the play on words far more than i should...chilly/chilli...yeah). It was really lovely and i can imagine it being perfect on a cold wintery evening, maybe with a cheeky dollop of thick cream on top, just to take the edge off the chilli.
i added a few extra squares of 85% dark chocolate as i was running v low on the chilli chocolate.
