Chilli Espresso Chocolate Fudge

A slice of these in the morning will keep you going till midnight! Chocolate, chilli & coffee: these are our all time faves. A basic chocolate fudge in itself is great, pair it with coffee and you’ll have people waiting in lines; add a little chilli and you have a winner!

Sinfully delicious, this dessert doubles as breakfast, especially on weekends! Ancho chilli known for its deep earthy flavour works miraculously with these chocolate squares. Available from Sprig, it has a mild sweet flavour which matches the undertones of coffee, enhancing the espresso flavour.
