To think this is completely disgusting and you'd have to be mad to eat it?

I had some chilli chocolate ice cream at the w/e - it was fabulous! (from an Isle of Wight choc make on sale on the S Bank)

A hint of chilli goes v well with v dark unsweet choc! Not sure about it in a cookie, though.

Where have you spotted this?

I love the combination of chilli and chocolate and make a mean chilli chocolate mouse cake.

I also put dark chocolate in my chilli con carne.

I thought this thread was going to be about the maggot cheese.

Yum - where can I get one? wink

Chilli and dark chocolate is weirdly fantastic.

I challenge you to eat it and report back. grin

I've tried chili and chocolate and I wasn't impressed but I think the chocolate wasn't good enough quality. I would be willing to try it again with better chocolate as they are two of my favourite flavours.

A chilli hater! shock

PinkyDinkyDooToo Tue 19-Aug-08 18:19:08

Yuk, it sounds gross. It annoys me when things are added to chocolate and spoil it. Chilli, Fruit, nuts. Whatever next grin

<Pinky goes off to eat her plain chocolate bar>

The Mayan people of central America first put chocolate and chilli together, so I learnt at Cadbury's World.

I wouldn't have the cookie, but I have had chilli chocolate sauce on a steak and it was gorgeous...

Dark choc and chilli is great. When the chilli kicks in just as the choc taste is fading you almost feel you are being punished, in a nice way of course...

Chili and chocolate together are lovely ...... Lindt ( I think) do a dark chocolate bar with a cherry layer and a chili kick. It's not too powerful at all.

megglevache Tue 19-Aug-08 18:51:31

choc and chilli is gorgeous.

Monkeytrousers Tue 19-Aug-08 18:52:37

you can get chilli chocolate anytime at Hotel Chocolat

captainmummy Tue 19-Aug-08 18:53:31

The choc coats the tongue and the chilli kicks through it.....fabulous.

MummyDoIt Tue 19-Aug-08 18:54:12

Not as disgusting as the orange I once bought from a street seller in Mexico. It was sprinkled with a powder that I thought was cinnamon but turned out to be hot chilli. Yuk!

Chilli.. chocolate... made for each other.

Both from the same part of the world in a way - South America. Perfect combination. South Americans use chocolate in meat dishes a lot apparently, but they don't do sweet chocolate.

Try a chocolate cake with chilli in it, or add a grating of dark choc to a chilli con carne (even better with a few cloves in too).

Green & Black do a scrumptious chilli choc bar. I'm going to have some right now...

Yummy!
