Hot Hot Chocolate

A few weeks ago I tried making some Habanero Pepper Jelly. I got Habanero Pepper sauce. It just wouldn't gel. I also added WAY too many of the little buggers and the stuff is atomic.

Today after all the Christmas festivities had died down a bit, we went out for a walk as a great excuse to put on real clothes instead of staying in pajamas all day long. When we got back Jessica had the brilliant idea and suggested I make us some hot chocolate.

When it had heated up a bit I ladled some into a cup for JBL. I didn't have a spoon rest nearby so I licked the bottom of the ladle so as not to make a big mess (hey it's my house, I can lick the ladle if I want) and got lit up. I had washed all my utensils since my last jamming session, but the ladle was still pretty radioactive. However, this sensation reminded me of the Chipotle Chocolate gelato I love to get at Whole Foods. I added about 2 teaspoons of my Habanero Jelly / Sauce to my hot chocolate and it was fantastic!

If you come to visit this winter, ask me and I'll make you a cup of my hot, hot chocolate!
