This is pretty good. I added extra cayenne. I also opted for the whipped cream and cayenne on top. Thank you for the recipe.-14 Dec 2017
- ½ cup whole milk
- ¼ cup chopped dark chocolate
- ¼ cup chopped milk chocolate (such as Dairy Milk)
- 3 pinches ground ginger
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or more to taste
Pour milk into a double boiler over simmering water heat until hot and steaming. Reduce heat to very low. Add dark chocolate and milk chocolate bit by bit, whisking gently to melt into the milk. Add ginger and cayenne once chocolate is velvety smooth with no unmelted bits.
Pour melted chocolate into espresso cups or other small-sized cups. Wipe steam off the bottom of the pan to prevent it from dripping into the cups as you pour.

When I was literally starving after switching to a paleo diet (not for weight loss, but for other health reasons) she said, “Tasha, you have to make the chocolate peanut butter cups.” I can’t decide if that’s hyperbole or not about the starving. I was ravenously hungry all the time. If you’ve ever cut out sugar and grains, you know how your body freaks out for about a week. I’ve been eating a paleo diet for over four months and chocolate is life. Except, you know, after Jesus. Obviously . He’s literally life and light and I hope we know I’m speaking superfluously here. But figuratively . . . chocolate is life. I can honestly say that I’ve used significantly more cocoa powder the past four months than I ever have in my life before.
