This drink is one made famous by Serendipity 3, a must-visit if you’re ever in New York City. It’s a tiny, funky place where hot fudge sundaes and treats like this abound. They now have one in Las Vegas too! You can buy a mix to make their Frrrozen Hot Chocolate, but it’s a bit pricey. It is very dangerous that I now know how to make this from scratch. It’s tastes just like the real thing and is a satisfying cold treat for a chocoholics like me. I see lots of Frozen Hot Chocolate in the summer days ahead!
3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
1 package Hot Cocoa Mix
2 Tablespoons Butter
2/3 cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
12 oz. Can Evaporated Milk
Two trays of ice cubes
Homemade Whipped Cream
Combine sugar, cocoa mix, and butter in the top of a double boiler that is set over gently boiling water. Stir often until melted and a smooth paste forms. Add chocolate chips & stir. When chips begin to melt, stir in 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. Mix until smooth. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
Combine the chocolate base mixture, the remaining evaporated milk, and ice in a blender (you can do this in batches) and cover. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses & top each with whipped cream. Sprinkle with cocoa and/or chopped chocolate chips if desired. Stick in a straw and enjoy! Just don’t drink too fast. :)
