Frozen Hot Chocolate
This refreshing Frozen Hot Chocolate drink is the perfect answer when craving chocolate. I love to sip it as a dessert or mid-afternoon pick me up. It is made with homemade chocolate milk powder and topped with homemade whipped topping and chocolate syrup.
Frozen Hot Chocolate Ingredients
Chocolate: I used milk chocolate chips in this recipe. It has a lighter, sweeter flavor than semi-sweet chocolate.
Hot Cocoa Mix: You can use storebought cocoa mix, or make your own homemade chocolate milk powder to use!
Milk: Warm up the milk to about 110°F. The warm milk will help the chocolate not to seize.
How to Make Frozen Hot Chocolate
We are just getting out of the coldest months, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up hot chocolate! This frozen hot chocolate is the answer. To make it, first, melt the chocolate chips in a large microwave-safe bowl. Melt the chocolate in 20-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until smooth.
Next, add the hot cocoa mix, sugar, and warm milk to the melted chocolate. Stir everything together until combined. Once the ingredients are mixed, add the ice and chocolate mixture to a blender. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately, topped with whipped topping and chocolate syrup. Then, use a straw to sip this slushy, chocolate drink.
Why is it called Frozen Hot Chocolate?
How can something be hot and frozen at the same time? Well, this drink’s name is definitely an oxymoron. But, it makes sense when you break down the contents of the drink. Ice is blended with hot cocoa mix to get the name.
