I saw this recipe from the lovely and talented Melanie at Kitchen Cafe. I have heard about frozen hot chocolate . It always sounded very whimsical and delightful…so I decided to give it a try. I made it for a Family Home Evening treat for my family and we LOVED it! It is NOT a milkshake–it is more icy and less creamy.( I like to think that it is a little healthier than a milkshake–but I’m not sure that it is!) This is a really fun treat! I have made it several times now. I guess it is originally a Serendipity recipe. Enjoy!
Frozen Hot Chocolate
submitted by Melanie
4oz of your favorite chocolate (We like to use milk chocolate chips–4oz =about 1 cup)
2 teaspoons store-bought hot chocolate powder
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups ice cube
slightly sweetened whipped cream
chocolate shavings (optional)
Chop chocolate into small pieces and melt in microwave on low heat. Once melted, add hot chocolate mix and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended. Remove from heat and 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. Enjoy!
