Inspired by Maggi and her experiments with chocolate and chillies, I’ve had a little go myself. Green & Black’s drinking chocolate provided the base, with about 1/3 of a teaspoon of chilli powder and about the same of mixed spices, stirred well.
As she suggests, it does indeed lift the spirits! It may, of course, be a coincidence but the feeling of well-being was followed in short order by a headache.
The good old cup of tea sorted that out.
