Italian Hot Chocolate

Italian hot chocolate (or cioccolata calda) is thick, rich and decadent. While technically a drink, this creamy chocolate concoction can easily be enjoyed as dessert.  Made with a chili kick using Lindt chili dark chocolate.

  • 60 g Lindt chili dark chocolate
  • 100 ml full-cream milk
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Break chocolate into small pieces and place into a small saucepan.
    • Add a little of the milk, stir on a low heat until the chocolate is melted.
  2. Slowly add the remaining milk, stirring continuously until well combined.
