6-8: Mexican hot chocolate

So the Mexican hot chocolate didn't take three days to make but I think you will see it's worth three whole advent doors! 

Start off with a teaspoon of cinnamon and chilli powder and one vanilla pod (with the seeds scraped out but we'll come back to that). Oh and a whole heap of dark chocolate:

Heat the powders and the vanilla pod with milk. Once it's boiled up pour it over the chocolate and whisk it until it's all blended:

Pour into your waiting mugs and give it a good whisk up so that it looks all fluffy and yummy:
Add a cinnamon stick and give it a final stir before sitting down with loved ones to generally make ooh and ahh noises and maybe even drool a little bit over how totally effin tasty it is:
To finish off, find someone that you know who has a brand new icecream maker (no names mentioned Fizz...oh...oops) and pass her the scraped out vanilla seeds to go home and make vanilla icecream for everyone. Result!

Ice cream has been made and is waiting in the freezer for the right moment to be scoffed. I resisted tucking in straight away, but I did lick the spoon. Yum. I think making ice cream might be my new passion.
