Mayan Hot Chocolate (4)
  1. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in a saucepan. Add the milk, orange zest, vanilla, allspice and honey. Slice the chilli in half and add that too. Cook the hot chocolate over a low heat, stirring constantly, until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is homogeneous.
  2. Taste, and if you’d like it hotter, leave it over the heat for a little longer for the chilli to infuse more heat, but don’t let it boil.
  3. Pour the hot chocolate through a sieve/fine-mesh strainer into a jug, then divide it evenly among four small mugs. Sprinkle over a little more grated chocolate to decorate. Enjoy hot.
