Award Winning Chocolate Chili

How sweet is this, chili and chocolate, two of my favourites! It’s a delicious combination of savoury and a little sweet. This recipe makes a big ‘batch’ of my favourite comfort food! You choose the ingredients that you like and omit the rest it’s a very flexible and forgiving dish! It might look like it takes a lot of time, but it’s fairly quick to make and the flavour improves with time – so double your recipe and you’re in chili heaven!
