Gently heat the cream and vanilla seeds and vanilla pod in a small saucepan. When the mixture simmers, turn off the heat and add the chopped chocolate. Stir with a wooden spoon until the chocolate has completely melted and the mixture is smooth and glossy. Should the mixture begin to separate, to appear curdled, simply stir in a spoonful or two of cold cream and continue gently stirring until the mixture smoothes out again. Pour into a small festive serving bowl and refrigerate until set. Serve with graham crackers, biscotti or fruit.
