Brandon and I have been enjoying a new treat lately:
Frozen Hot Chocolate. We used to go to Dairy Queen to get this delicious treat, but after a while it added up in cost. So we decided to make our own. It is Very good and super easy to make! We enjoy it and wanted to share the goodness! Enjoy:
- 3 ounces best-quality chocolate (or a variety of your favorites)
- 2 teaspoons store bought hot chocolate mix
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 3 cups ice
- whipped cream and chocolate shavings for garnish (for fancy look)
Chop the chocolate into small pieces and melt in a small heavy saucepan. Stir occasionally until melted.
Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar, stirring constantly until blended.
Remove from heat and slowly add 1/2 cup of the milk, stirring until smooth.
Cool to room temperature.
In a blender, place the remaining 1 cup of milk, the chocolate mixture, and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
