Sex on a Plate
(a.k.a. Mexican Hot Chocolate Semifreddo)

2 cups Heavy Cream (chilled)
2 tablets Mexican Drinking Chocolate or ¾ cup dark chocolate
4 large eggs at room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp almond extract
1 tsp cinnamon plus more for sprinkling
½ to 1 tsp chili powder
¼ tsp salt

Preperation: Line a loaf pan with plastic wrap leaving a 3 inch overhang.

Fill a medium saucepan ¾ full with water and heat over medium-low heat to create a double boiler.

In a small saucepan melt ½ cup heavy cream with the Mexican tablets of chocolate. Mexican chocolate has a higher sugar content and melting will take longer for the chocolate to dissolve. Once chocolate has dissolved remove from stove and whisk with milk. Set aside and cool to room temperature.


Whip the chilled 1 ½ cups of heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Put in the refrigerator to stay cold.


In the double boiler whisk (or beat with an electric mixer) the eggs, sugar and salt.

The mixture will eventually triple in volume.

This will take approximately 8 minutes.

Remove bowl from water and beat for 5 more minutes until the mixtures comes to room temperature.

Mix in almond extract, vanilla extract, cinnamon and chili powder.

Pour cooled chocolate mixture into cooled egg mixture and mix thoroughly.

Gently fold in 1/3 of whipped heavy cream.


Once incorporated, fold in the remaining chilled whipped heavy cream.

Spoon mixture into lined loaf pan. Cover with plastic wrap overhang and put in freezer. Freeze until completely firm—approximately 5 hours.

Uncover, lift out of pan by the plastic wrap overhang. Carefully invert semifreddo onto a chilled platter.

Slice into 6 pieces and dust with cinnamon.
