Frozen Hot Chocolate

  •  David got a packet of this mix as a thank-you from some friends, for taking care of their garden while they were gone.  They are from the East Coast, and Serendipity 3 is a restaurant in New York.  David wasn't thrilled to share his gift, so Aaron searched for a recipe online.  This is what we found.  It really does taste like hot chocolate that has been frozen.  Not quite a milkshake though.  The difference between David's mix and this recipe seemed to be the creamy factor.  David's seemed more creamy.  However we didn't top it with whipped cream or chocolate shavings,  That would be even better.

  •  Serendipity 3's Frozen Hot Chocolate
  • Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
  • 2 tablespoons Ghirardelli cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon Hershey's cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon Scharffen Berger cocoa powder*
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups ice
  • On top
  • Whipped cream
  • Shavings from a semisweet chocolate bar

  • Directions
    Combine the sugar, dry milk powder, cocoas, and salt in a small bowl. Pour the milk into a blender. Add the dry mix and ice. Blend until all the ice is crushed and the drink is smooth. Pour into a large goblet or two 16-ounce glasses. Top the drink with whipped cream and shavings from a semisweet chocolate bar (use a carrot peeler), then add a spoon and straw and serve.
    Makes one 30-ounce serving or two 15-ounce servings. 
    *If you can't locate this brand of cocoa, use 3 tablespoons Ghirardelli cocoa powder and 1 tablespoon Hershey's cocoa powder.
