Spicy hot chocolate
Today, we met the spiciest couple in Moncton. Well, I mean we’re not in an intimate relationship to say but we know for sure they grow the best garden hot peppers in town. Jeremie found himself a real passion for the hot peppers leading him to transform his home into a greenhouse during the winter. Fortunately for him, his girlfriend Sarah shares the same love for spices or should we say she learned how to love them. She also takes all the pics and you may follow their urban farm adventure on Instagram.
We do love chocolate, they do love spices. Let’s make a recipe with both. Inspired by the ancient Mayan cocoa beverage, we made a spicy hot chocolate using milk chocolate from Madagascar and super chili. The milk chocolate 40% from Chocolaterie Robert is a perfect pick for this recipe. Its caramel flavor reinforced by the vanilla takes the edge off the chili taste. A great balance for a rich and comforting beverage to warm your body in the cold days.
Spicy hot chocolate (4 cups)
