What can I say? There is always room for dessert. Especially for this one. Well, the idea came when I received this as a gift a couple of months back.

I figured since I always did the Gordon Ramsay’s Hot Chocolate Fondant, why not try a spiced-up version of it with these bad boys? And so it began.

50 g of Newman’s Chilli Bites (about 4 pieces)
50 g of unsalted butter
30 g of caster sugar or 1.5 tbsp of honey
1 egg
50 g of self-raising flour
a dash of cocoa powder (I just used milo powder)

WEIGH the mixture. It should be at least 130g. Sorry about the knife there.

TEMPER chocolate with sugar and butter (either over a pot of simmering water or in the microwave for 90 seconds)

2013-09-11 19.32.42

ADD egg
BEAT it into the chocolate mixture

GREASE ramekin with butter (tip : tear and use the wrapping paper of your butter)
 ramekin with cocoa powder (I used milo)

2013-09-11 19.25.28

POUR mixture into ramekin and cling wrap if you intend to eat it later.

BAKE in preheated oven of 200C for 14 minutes.

LEAVE  in oven to semi-cook for 30 seconds.
REMOVE from oven after that 30 seconds to cool down at room temperature for about 3 mins.
LINE the edges with knife

2013-09-11 21.42.22

FLIP ramekin over onto plate.
PRAY real hard everything goes smoothly from this point.

DUST with icing sugar
SERVE alone or with icecream

I re-inverted as you can tell.

ENJOY your dessert.
