No, Father Christmas, I expect you to DIE

Please enjoy Stoaty’s Chococaffochili Surprise!

Make coffee. Pour it over 2 tablespoons of ground up milk chocolate (or dark chocolate. A good quality candy bar will do. But no nuts or raisins). Add cinnamon, nutmeg and a few flakes of dried chili pepper. Yes, really. Whisk until the chocolate dissolves and the liquid froths a little. Add a glop of heavy cream.

The chili doesn’t add flavor so much as a slightly perceptible sting. It’s…weaselicious!

I got the idea from some pretentious, hoity-toity flaked hot chocolate I bought in England. The Aztecs supposedly did it. Or the Olmecs. Or the Toltecs. Or whichever ancient Mexicans invented chocolate, hot peppers and ripping still-beating hearts out of the chests of prisoners of war. Mmmm-mmm!
