Vodka Chilli Chocolates



i just recently bought a new chocolate cookbook. as i was reading through it this recipe jumped out at me. i think it might be the most interesting and different recipe in the book and i decided to try it. they were relatively easy to make, but extremely spicy!!!! i could only take one bite, but i don't have a high tolerance for heat. anyway here is the recipe for those of you who might want to try making them.

recipe from Green & Black's Chocolate Recipes
6 green chilli peppers, stalks on
6 red chilli peppers, stalks on
12 ounces vodka
3 1/2 ounces good quality white or dark chocolate to fill the chillis
3 1/2 ounces dark chocolate for dipping

Wash the chillis, then cut a small slit in the side and remove the seeds and the membranes. Marinate the prepared chillis in vodka for at least 12 hours before you prepare the filling.

To make the filling melt the chocolate in the microwave, stirring until smooth. Mix in a shot of vodka into the chocolate. Fill the chillis with the chocolate. Store the chillis in a container in the freezer until needed.

To dip the chillis, melt the dark chocolate in the microwave in a glass. Dip the chillis so that they are 3/4 covered in chocolate. Place on wax paper to set.

Hey Somer,
How are you? I wanted to write you a note, not about Peppers =), but about life and stuff.
I always enjoy your family's letters. I think about you all often. We saw Sue at the grocery weeks ago. She just lights up when she talks about you all, especially the girls! Please know that you have lots of people praying for you and missing you.
I also love your recipes. I plan to try a few. We are in a terrible "hamburgers and hotdogs on the grill" rut.
Enjoy your girls they grew up quick and then want to wear lip gloss!!
Grace is 9 and likes to try new lip colors together...she is so creative!
Love, Cary Gavlin
