This week we posted recipes that were really simple. Not a lot of ingredients and only a few steps. This Frozen Hot Chocolate was no exception. We had all the ingredients on hand and we were enjoying our drinks in only a couple of minutes. Life is good!
I heart this drink! Definitely a rich indulgence! If you like hot chocolate (or chocolate in general) then you will really love this recipe, I assure you. I knew it would be good…but it was even better than I imagined. It was icy cold, sweet and chocolatey! An A+!
The whipped cream, marshmallows and mini chips were a nice touch but the drink would taste delicious even without those extra touches. It’s one of those recipes you won’t make very often, but when you do it’s a really special treat.
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons hot chocolate mix (about 1 packet)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
⅓ cup semisweet chocolate chips
⅓ cup white chocolate chips
12 ounces evaporated milk, divided
4½ cups ice
whipped cream, to taste
mini marshmallows, to taste
mini chocolate chips, for garnish
Combine sugar, hot chocolate mix, and butter in the top of a double boiler set over gently boiling water. Stir until melted and a smooth paste forms. Add semisweet and white chocolate chips; continue to stir. When chips begin to melt, slowly stir in ½ cup of the evaporated milk. Stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
Combine the chocolate mixture, the remaining evaporated milk and ice in a blender and cover. Blend until smooth. Pour into frosted glasses. Top with whipped cream. Sprinkle with additional chopped chocolate chips & mini marshmallows, if desired.
