I am never sad about the transition from winter into spring. Except for leaving behind hot cocoa. With this frosty beverage, you can carry your hot chocolate experience into summer! Enjoy!
Frozen Hot Cocoa
Serves 4-6 (depending on serving size)
11 oz dark chocolate chips
3 Tbsp hot chocolate mix (I used my homemade version)
1/3 cup white sugar
6 cups skim milk
10 cups ice
In a double boiler, melt chocolate chips over low boiling water, stirring until melted. Whisk in cocoa and sugar until blended. Remove from heat and add 2 cups milk, whisking until smooth. Cool mixture to room temperature.
In a blender, add mixture, remaining milk and ice (you may need to make 2 batches, depending on the size of your blender!). Blend on a high speed until smooth in consistency. Serve in glasses and top with whipped cream if desired!
