Here's an easy recipe that pays tribute to the roots of chocolate. Chocolate was originally a bitter drink brewed by the Aztecs for special occasions and feasts: cocoa beans were ground, and then mixed with water and hot spices. This recipe is real bittersweet chocolate, enriched with piri piri to give it some extra punch. Add the spices to your liking.
