What’s better than heart-shaped boxes of waxy chocolate? Answer: a spicy drinking chocolate. This is like sex in a cup. Although I am not a physician, and I can’t guarantee such results, I assure you for once that your significant other will not be disappointed.
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.
