  • 17.64 ounces (500g) dark chocolate
  • 1.69 fluid ounces (80ml) cream
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder or to taste
  • 1.41 ounces (40g) butter, unsalted
  1. In a smaller pot bring the cream and chilli powder to the boil. Add ⅔ of the chocolate and melt while stirring to a smooth mixture. Add butter and stir again.
  2. Pour the mixture into a buttered rectangular baking dish; leave to set completely (about 6 hours).
