6 A Frozen Hot Chocolate

Frozen Hot ChocolateI saw this recipe on My Kitchen Cafe when I first started this blog. I vowed I would make it...and I'm so glad I did!

Frozen...hot...sounds like an oxymoron, but this really works! I took my favorite hot chocolate, Stephen's Chocolate Mint Truffle and combined it with semi-sweet chocolate chips. I had some half and half on hand, so that made it extra heavenly!

Since my husband and I were the only ones home, I cut the recipe in half. After gulping the last drop, I kind of wished I made a full batch!

One of my goals is to try a new recipe and post it here. Thanks, Melanie!

Frozen Hot Chocolate
from My Kitchen Cafe
(4x6 printable recipe) (full page recipe)
4 oz. of your favorite chocolate
2 t. store-bought hot chocolate powder
1 1/ T. sugar
1 1/2 c. milk
3 c. ice cubes
whipped cream
chocolate shavings, optional

Chop chocolate into small pieces and melt in microwave on low heat. (I just used chocolate chips and melted them in the microwave on high power for 1 min., stirred, and then 30 seconds more on high power).
Once melted, add hot chocolate mix and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended.
Slowly add 1/2 c. milk, stirring until smooth.
Cool to room temperature.
In blender, place remaining 1 c. of milk, chocolate mixture and ice.
Blend on high speed until smooth and consistency of a frozen daiquiri.
Enjoy!
