Step by step
Pour the milk, cream, sugar, cocoa and corn starch in a pan and simmer on a low heat, giving a gentle stir.
Once the mixture has begun to warm up, grate the dark and milk chocolate into the pan and stir until dissolved into a thick mixture.
Add a pinch of salt and stir, then grab a vanilla pod, slice down the middle, tip to tip and submerge into the chocolate.
Allow to simmer for a few more minutes then turn off the heat, setting to one side.
Once the mixture has cooled down ever so slightly, remove the vanilla pods and finally add Black Cow Christmas Spirit.
Christmas Spirit it a limited edition seasonal vodka and will be available to buy again in late-2022.
