Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity in New York
My niece sent me this recipe from the Serendipity cookbook that her parents brought her from New York. We wanted to try it immediately. Needless to say this recipe is pretty easy and absolutely delish! I think we have found our new summer treat. Hope you have fun with it!
A little bit of Heaven.
Frozen Hot Chocolate
6 half ounce pieces of a variety of your favorite chocolates
2 teaspoons storebought hot chocolate mix
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups ice
*Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in the top of a double broiler over simmering water, stirring occasionally until melted. Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended. Remove from heat and slowly add 1/2 cup of the milk and stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
*In a blender place the remaining cup of milk, the room temperature chocolate mixture, and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Pour into a giant goblet and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Enjoy with a spoon or a straw--or both!
