Sweet Heat # 3 Round Up ~ Christmas

Well just like that Christmas has been and gone! I always find it amazing how you spend so much time getting organised and ready for the day and then before you know it's all over with for another year. That being said it was another great Christmas and so I hope you all had a lovely day however you celebrated it!

Amazingly despite all the busyness plenty of you still managed to take part in this month's Sweet Heat challenge where the theme was, of course, Christmas! There seemed to be a little confusion with the challenge this month as there were a few festive entries which all looked and sounded delicious however unfortunately didn't include the star ingredient of chillies! Since it was Christmas though and I'm still in the festive spirit I have included them in the Round Up but please make sure for future month's to include some spicy heat!

So without any further delay here are this month's Spicy Christmas recipes......

First up is Corina from Searching for Spice with her deliciously rich and decadent Chocolate Chilli Truffles – the perfect Christmas treat to give as a gift or to yourself!......

Next is Sadaf from My Culinary Adventures with her beautiful and spicy Indian Style Meatball Kabobs.......

Sweet Heat regular contributor (and next month's host!) is the lovely Michelle from Food, Football and a Baby with her fabulous looking festive Butter Chicken …...

My (first) entry for this month's challenge were my Chilli and Gold Flecked Lollipops which proved to be a lot more popular than I had anticipated with their sweet and spicy flavour combination.......

The second curry of the challenge and Francesa from Checky's Kitchen made a deliciously aromatic Thai Massamam Christmas Curry.......

Continuing with main courses and Sonali from Only Fish Recipes made this fabulous and spicy looking Karala Style Prawns Roast.......

Back to sweet treats and my second entry was my Chocolate Thins that were sprinkled with a good dose of dried chilli flakes and edible red glitter for that fiery festive finish!.....

Sneaking in at the end of the month and another Sweet Heat regular contributor, Janice from Farmers Girl pulls it out of the (Santa!) hat with her unbelievable sounding Chocolate Chilli Ice Cream! A definite must try.....

Next up is Ramkumari from Spicy Khana with her deliciously festive Homemade Chocolate......

Anjali from Sugar n Spice Tales made a wonderful looking African inspired Apple Paneer Mishrimava …........

And finally Kavi from Endless Entertaining made her fantastic version of an Eggless Molten Lava Cake – delish!

Thank you all for taking part in this month's Sweet Heat Challenge and making some truly spicy festive treats! Due to it being New Year's on the 1st, next month's Sweet Heat Challenge will be announced on the 3rd of January and is being hosted by the lovely Michelle over at Food, Football and a Baby so make sure to drop by and see what spicy theme she has come up with for January!


  1. Oh blast, missed the deadline. Have sent it to you anyway and the Chocolate Chilli ice cream is on my blog :)

  2. Not a problem - I will add it in! Sounds far too good not to be included plus it's been a busy time! : )

  3. Ooo, I love these chocolate desserts with the chilis in them! This is such a great combo. I am also super interested in those chili suckers. I am going to check that recipe out now. Happy New Year!

  7. I'm sorry I missed out this month! I was away and SICK for much of December. Can't wait for next month, though.

  8. Thanks everyone! It was another great month.

    Susan - we missed you but look forward to having you back next month! : )

  9. Nice round-up with some lovely recipes - especially the truffles and your chocolate thins. Would like to have entered this one, but was way too busy over Christmas. Hey ho, another time!

    Wishing you a very Happy New Year
