Three types of chillies – guajillo, chilli de arbol and chipotle – give this Mexican inspired dessert sauce a smoky kick. Plain and milk chocolate, nutty peanut butter and warm cinnamon make this an intense, luscious complement to sweet churros, fresh fruit or assorted cookies.
  • 4 large dried guajillo chillies, stemmed and seeded

  • 4 dried chillies de arbol, stemmed and seeded

  • 450 millilitre (¾ pint) water

  • 125 millilitre (4 fluid ounce) double cream

  • 2 tablespoons glucose syrup*

  • 100 gram (4 ounce) plain chocolate, coarsely chopped

  • 100 gram (4 ounce) milk chocolate, coarsely chopped

  • 125 millilitre (4 fluid ounce) dark rum

  • 4 teaspoon smooth peanut butter

  • 1½ teaspoon Cinnamon Ground

  • ¼ teaspoon chipotle chilli pepper powder

  • ½ teaspoon Sesame Seed


  • 1 Heat pan over a medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Add chillies and toast for 30 seconds per side, or until they begin to blister and change colour. Let saucepan cool slightly then add water to cover chillies and bring to boil. Reduce heat to low then simmer for 30 minutes, until chillies soften.
  • 2 Remove chillies with kitchen tongs and place in blender. Add 125ml (4fl oz) of the chilli soaking liquid, cover and blend on high speed until smooth. Discard the remaining soaking liquid.
  • 3 Pass the chilli purée through a sieve into a saucepan, then stir in cream and glucose syrup. Bring just to boil on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients, stir until chocolate is melted and the mixture is smooth. Garnish with Sesame Seeds.
