Connoisseurs Hot Chocolate
Try this amazing version of hot chocolate that is guaranteed to leave all other hot chocolates in its wake.
A gently spiced hot chocolate made with real chocolate as well as a little cocoa. The natural starches in the chocolate thicken the drink, so it pays to whisk a little longer.

2 cardamom pods (broken)
Pinch of salt
1) Dry roast the cardamom and star anise for 3 minutes in the bottom of a saucepan.
2) Add all the other ingredients and whisk over a medium heat for 8 minutes until all the chocolate is melted and the mixture has thickened slighlty.
