For two people:
- 2 cups of milk
- A vanilla bean OR a teaspoon of real vanilla extract (not imitation)
- About 30g of dark chocolate (at least 60% cocoa)
- A cinnamon stick*
- Add a tiny bit of sugar if needed, but taste it first - it's not meant to be sickly sweet
Simple: boil it all in a saucepan until the chocolate is melted and mixed through. Take out the cinnamon stick and vanilla bean. Whisk until frothy.
*Don't use powdered cinnamon, if possible. It will make your drink gritty. In fact, maybe you could also stir it with a dried whole chilli instead of chilli powder for spice... now that's thinking!
