On the third day of Yule...Orange & Cardamon Hot Chocolate

Chocolate, orange, cardamon...yum!



Orange & Cardamon Hot Chocolate

4 oz (approx 3/4 cup) milk or white chocolate, chopped
2 cups milk
The seeds from 3 cardamon pods, crushed
1 two-inch strip of orange zest
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pop the milk into a saucepan over a low heat and add in the cardamon seeds and the orange zest, heat until the milk is just below boiling.

Put the chocolate into a bowl and strain the milk over the top, stir the milk and chocolate until the chocolate dissolves adding in the vanilla extract.

Serve topped with whipped cream and a spinkle of cinnamon if you like.

A short cut is to use orange flavoured chocolate then you won't need to add the orange zest.
