You know those nights when you want a treat so bad and there's nothing in the house to satisfy your craving, but you're too tired and lazy to get in the car and go get something? Yah, that was me tonight! I wanted a frozen treat so bad, but I didn't wanna leave the house and neither did my hubby, so I decided to search the cupboards one more time to see if I could come up with something yummy. And low and behold, we had everything I needed to make ourselves some Frozen Hot Chocolates! These little treats were exactly what my sweet tooth needed. Yum. Yum. Yum.
3 ounces best-quality chocolate (I used chocolate chips)
2 teaspoons store bought hot chocolate mix
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups ice
Whipped cream, for garnish
Chocolate shavings, for garnish
Chop the chocolate into small pieces and melt in a small saucepan or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir 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 and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Pour into a giant goblet and top with whipped cram and chocolate shavings.
