    Hi Elle, you forgot one of chocolate’s best friends, CHILLI. Dark chocolate and chilli is a marriage made in heaven! You could add chilli powder, hot or whatever, or just use a bar or two of good quality dark chocolate with chilli in it, like Lindts, or Green & Blacks. I’ve experimented with a few chunks of those dissolved in a mug of good quality cocoa made with full fat milk before and it was the dogs’ dangly bits, if you know what I mean. ;D

    There’s something that holds me back from chilli chocolate – although I know others who swear by it.

    You can keep your chilli then… and your dog’s danglies :D

    Ooh! Good call, there, Alf!
    I’m off to hunt for one of my bars of G&B chilli (if I can remember where I stashed them!)
