What a great hot chocolate Lene. I loved it, the ratio of cardamom and cinnamon is perfect. This is a beautifully spiced, decadent hot chocolate. Rich, thick and creamy. I used lindor chocolates for an extra special treat, thank you so much for sharing. :)

I love this recipe! I think this has to be one of the highlights of Ainsley's Gourmet Express - thanks for posting :) I like to serve ours with cinnamon sticks for stirrers too.....
