tasty treats : the most perfect cup?

Ah, one of my most favourite things about Pinterest is seeing the sheer joy people have for searching out the most gorgeous looking tasty treat recipes. Especially when those tasty treats feature chocolate high up in the ingredients list... ;)

As you all know I am a self confessed chocolate addict, but what you might not know is that I am completely rubbish when it comes to whipping up tasty treats with the stuff. Yes I occasionally dabble... I did make these for myself and yes they were very yummy, but so ridiculously addictive too and I ate almost a whole bar of Green & Black's in one sitting, which even for me is a wee bit excessive! But my dabbling is always with very simple recipes, ones that don't have a high dairy content, which I'm shouldn't eat a lot of. That is such a huge sticking point when it comes to the most yummy looking chocolate recipes, they are always laced with lashings of butter and double cream... *sigh* ...That's why I'm always on the lookout for simple and adaptable ideas and that's why I was completely smitten when I saw these yummy chocolate cups...

Apart from the cream and coffee (another 'no-no' for me), I love the idea of the chocolate, rum and cayenne pepper combo. And I'm thinking it would work perfectly with a super simple mousse I make, extremely thick coconut milk and Nutella whipped together then chilled to set... maybe with a dash of rum or even the cayenne pepper in there. Oh, and I just had a thought of topping if off with delicious rum soaked raspberries. Yum!

Wishing you lots of chocolaty goodness,
