Frozen Hot Chocolate

I had a girls night get together over at my house this weekend to celebrate one of my friends who just had a birthday and who is moving away this week. For dessert I kept it simple and made chocolate chip cookies and frozen hot chocolate. It was the perfect treat to have while sitting around the table and talking for hours. The taste and texture of this frozen hot chocolate kind of reminds me of a frosty making it a great drink to have on warm summer night!

Frozen Hot Chocolate

  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 6 Tablespoons sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons of your favorite hot cocoa mix
  • 2/3 cups white chocolate chips
  • 2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 12oz. cans evaporated milk, divided
  • 9 cups ice
  • whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles for garnish

fill a small saucepan with one inch of water and bring it to a gentle boil. place a glass bowl on top of the saucepan and make sure the bottom of the bowl doesn't touch the water. melt butter in bowl. stir in cocoa mix and sugar. stir in white and semi-sweet chocolate chips. stir in 1 cup evaporated milk and whisk until smooth. remove bowl from saucepan and cool to room temperature. (I put it in the refrigerator to speed up the process.)

combine ice, chocolate mixture, and remaining evaporated milk in a blender (divide this into batches if your blender isn't big enough to hold it all at once). blend until smooth. divide into glasses and top with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.

*makes 6 glass fulls
