  1. Put the milk in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over a gentle heat. Remove from the heat and stir through the chocolate, cinnamon, nutmeg, salted caramel and chilli. Stir until the chocolate has melted. Add the sea salt, to taste. Return to the heat, stirring, until it just starts to simmer.
  2. Pour into small cups. Serve with the cinnamon sticks to use as stirrers, if using. Sprinkle with the grated chocolate.

Tip: For an extreme salty-sweet treat, brush the rim of the glass with caramel dessert sauce and dip in a little of the salt. For a more subtle flavour, dip in demerara sugar mixed with a pinch of salt.
