INGREDIENTS

  • 1 2/3 cups cream; you can also use whole milk, or preferably a mixture of the two
  • ½ vanilla bean, split length-wise
  • 1 dried red chile, split and seeded
  • One 2-3-inch cinnamon stick
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2-2½ ounces bittersweet or Mexican chocolate
  • Freshly grated nutmeg, for garnish
  • Whipped cream, optional, for garnish

DIRECTIONS

In a small saucepan over low heat, bring milk/cream, vanilla bean, chili, cinnamon, and salt to a gentle simmer. Let simmer about 2 minutes.

Add chocolate and whisk until completely melted. Once melted, turn off the heat and let the flavors infuse for about 10-12 minutes.

Strain into a clean pot, reheat gently, and divide between 2 glasses, and garnish with optional whipped cream (for extra credit) and a shaving of nutmeg.
