 6 cups milk

2 cinnamon sticks

1 vanilla bean, split

2 cardamom pods, bruised

200g good-quality dark chocolate

¼ cup crème de cacao or coffee liqueur – omit for non-alcoholic version, or add a shot of coffee instead. 

1 cup thickened cream

Combine milk, cinnamon sticks, vanilla bean and cardamom pods in a large saucepan.

Bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Remove from heat, set aside for 5 minutes to infuse.

Place chocolate in a clean saucepan. Strain hot milk over chocolate. Stir over low heat until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth.
