  1. Combine 50ml of milk with the cocoa and cornflour. Mix well and set aside.
  2. Combine the remaining milk in the slow cooker with the maple syrup, vanilla and cinnamon. Turn the heat to high, cover with the lid and bring the milk to just below boiling point; this will take about 10 minutes.
  3. Turn off the heat, add the chocolate and stir constantly until melted. Add the cornflour mixture and continue stirring until the hot chocolate has thickened.
  4. Discard the vanilla bean and cinnamon quill. Serve hot chocolate in mugs, topped with a toasted marshmallow or dollop of cream.
