It snowed at our house today…really??? It’s not even November yet. So, needless to say it was cold today. You might be asking yourself…Frozen?? hot chocolate. Well I’m not a hot drink kinda gal, for some reason those drinks don’t sit very well with my tummy so I thought this is the perfect way to enjoy a nice cup of hot cocoa.
It’s a knock off recipe from the famous restaurant, Serendipity so I knew it was going to be good…and it was DELICIOUS!!! We drank our in a matter of minutes. So enjoy a cold/hot drink for a cool (or hot) day.
- 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.
