Summer is early, and at this rate, it won't be easy! So, I'm digging out all my summer treats and lighter meal recipes, when the temps soar, the last thing you want or need is a heavy meal, but a cool treat is always welcomed! This is also a great way to use up your winter stash of hot cocoa! Very easy and VERY good!
Frozen Hot Chocolate
3 oz. good chocolate
2 T. store bought hot cocoa mix or homemade
1/2 T. sugar
1 1/2 c. milk
3 c. ice
chocolate shavings or sprinkles ( live it up)
Chop chocolate into small pieces and melt in a small saucepan till melted. Add cocoa mix and sugar, stirring well till blended. Remove from heat and add 1/2 c. milk, stirring well. Cool to room temperature. In a blender place remaining milk, the cooled chocolate mixture and ice. Blend on high till smooth, should resemble a frozen drink. Pour into a tall glass or large mug, top with whipped cream, chocolate shavings or sprinkles. Makes one large serving.
I highly recommend using only good chocolate, you can even mix it up and use more than one for a richer taste, either way, this is a nice treat so keep these ingredients on hand, and live it up! Happy June! :)
