Frozen hot chocolate -Tried it out Thursday



After all the hard work on my front porch makeover, I decided I needed a cool treat. I have lots of hot chocolate left over from the winter, so I searched out a way to use up those packets. I found this recipe for frozen hot chocolate and gave it a try. I totally recommend it.

  • 3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1 package Hot Cocoa Mix (about 3 Tablespoons)
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • ⅓ cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • ⅓ cups White Chocolate Chips
  • 12 ounces, fluid Can Evaporated Milk, Divided
  • 4-½ cups Ice
  • Whipped Cream, To Taste
  • Mini Marshmallows, To Taste

  • 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 semi-sweet & white chocolate chips; stir. When chips begin to melt, slowly stir in 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. Stir until smooth. 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 frosty glasses. Top each with whipped cream. Sprinkle with additional chopped chocolate chips & mini marshmallows, if desired.


    FYI: I only had a 5 oz. can of evaporated milk, so I substituted 7 oz of skim milk. I'm sure it was not as rich as the original recipe, but it was still good. I didn't have any whipped cream either, so I left it off.

    Give it a try for yourself.
