  • 200ml full fat milk
  • Rind of an orange
  • Pinch of dried chilli flakes
  • Cinnamon stick
  • 3 teaspoons of good quality hot chocolate (preferably pure chocolate flakes)
  • Whipped cream, to serve (optional)


    1. Peel the rind off the orange and place in a saucepan along with the milk, chilli flakes and cinnamon stick.
    2. Bring to the boil then remove the pan from the heat. Allow the flavours to infuse for at least 5 minutes, then whisk in the hot chocolate powder or flakes.
    3. Return to the hob to warm through to ensure the chocolate is completely melted.
    4. Pour through a sieve to remove the orange rind, chilli flakes and cinnamon stick.
    5. Serve in your favourite mug garnished with whipped cream, orange rind and extra chilli flakes if you wish for a warm and spicey brew that would go down a treat on Bonfire night.
