Recipe's preparation

  1. Place the dark chocolate pieces in the TM bowl and chop 5 sec/speed 8.

  2. Heat the chocolate for 8 min/50°C/speed 1, stopping to scrape down as necessary to ensure all the chocolate is melted. Stir for 1 min/speed 1 (no heat), or until the temperatures fall to 37°C.

  3. Add dried cherries, desiccated coconut and chilli flakes. Stir for 30 sec/speed 2. Dark chocolate sets quickly, so it's important to work swiftly, before the mixture becomes too stiff. Tip mixture on to a lined baking tray and spread with the spatula. Set aside in a cool place or in the refrigerator.

  4. When set, snap into bite-sized pieces.


Dark chocolate and chilli are good friends and I love to get them together in this easy chocolate slab. I use sour cherries when I can for the lovely lip-puckering dimension they bring to this treat.

Chilli Cherry Ripe

    Love this recipe! I add 40g of coconut oil with the chocolate in step 2 to make it easier to cut and reduce the chilli a little but it's a great recipe!
    I've also made with dried cranberries when dried cherries aren't available.

    I followed the recipe exactly but it hasn't entirely set. For example, I can't break off clean pieces unless it's been in the fridge. Any idea why? Thx!

    This is one of my favourite & simple dishes to take to a gathering. I often use cranberries but do love it with cherries too. I found dried cherries

    Awesome recipe.  Made 2 slabs for Easter and broke it up and bagged it in cello bags as gifts.  We're a hit.
