Soften gelatin in milk for a few minutes.  

Using a paring knife, scrape off the vanilla beans from the split vanilla pod.

Place the cream, vanilla bean, and sugar in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn down heat and
simmer then add gelatin mixture. Turn off heat. Allow to cool a little.

Put in molds. Chill for 4 hours or overnight.

Vanilla tip:  Don't throw the used vanilla pod just yet. Instead, let it sit inside a jar of sugar. This makes for a bolder flavored sugar and adds an interesting vanilla taste to your coffee and chocolate drink.
