Steps

  1. Boil water,sugar and chilli together until all the sugar dissolves. Before adding the chilli, take care to remove the seeds from it.

  3. Now add the orange extract and swirl the pot to incorporate the sugar syrup and the extract.
  4. Now in a baking tray lined with parchment paper, pour the sugar syrup and let it sit for 15 minutes or until it hardens.
  5. Once it has hardened, break the sugar into pieces and pulse it in a food processor until it becomes sandy.
  6. On a double boil, melt the chocolate and remove from heat.
  7. Then add the coconut, orange juice and the finely ground orangy sugar. Mix well.
