easy peasy, made these egg shaped for an easter pressie. You get a really smooth truffle, then a bit of a kick at the end, nice kick tho not an ouch, aye-yah kick. unless you want to give someone ones like those Wink

100g bar of dark chocolate (use a 70% cocoa one like green n blacks)
150ml double cream
50g butter (unsalted)
tablespoon of cocoa powder
pinch of cayenne (bout 1/3 teaspoon , but add more or less to taste)
finely ground dried chile flakes , about half a teaspoon but again to taste / how much of a surprise you want the recipient to have)

melt the butter, cream, and chocolate ina  glass bowl over water that simmering in a pan, nice and s-l-o-w. when melted add the cocoa, chile n cayenne n mix smoothly.

refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until the mix becomes firm , then roll into wee balls then roll the balls in cocoa powder or icing sugar to coat.

best to keep them cool in the fridge

I can't wait to make these!  I ordered my boyfriend some 'fancy' chocolates for Valentine's Day and some of them were chile chocolates and they were so so yummy.  Thanx for posting!

One of my favorite recipe calls for adding chipotle paste to brownie mix. They are so tasty, but nobody ever eats them. Oh well more for me. Thanks for that recipe. I will have to try these!

This reminds me of the movie Chocolat, Juliete Binoche's character adds chilie to her chocolate.  I add it to my hot chocolate, I'm not a fan of hugely sweet things, so these sound wonderful.

You wouldn't want to share the recipe, would you? Wink sounds good, and I'd love to try it Cheesy

Super easy!
1 Box Brownie mix (or your recipe)
2 Tablespoons Chipotle past (or chipotles with the paste)

If you are using whole chipotles, shop them finely first.
Mix thoroughly into the brownie mix and bake as directed.

I always put about 3T (or the whole can depending on my mood) to make them spicier. Be careful though because cooking them makes them hotter!  Grin
