Who doesn’t love hot chocolate on a cold night? But with summer approaching, turning a favorite winter drink into an icy, sweet, cool drink is my idea of summer!
This recipe has plenty of chocolate in it for all of you chocoholics. If you’ve never had frozen hot chocolate, try it because it’s delicious! Need I say more?
Frozen Hot Chocolate
4 ounces of your favorite chocolate
2 teaspoons store-bought hot chocolate powder
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups ice cubes
sweetened whipped cream
chocolate shavings (optional)
Chop chocolate into small pieces and melt in microwave on low heat. Once its melted, add hot chocolate mix and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended.
Slowly add 1/2 cup milk, stirring until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
In blender, place the remaining 1 cup milk, room-temperature chocolate mixture and ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri.
