Frozen Hot Chocolate

My husband and I enjoyed a romp around New York City last week. And, though we made it to a good number of classic NYC eateries (Carnegie Deli, Billy’s Bakery, Gray’s Papaya), we never got ourselves to Serendipity. And what a shame that was, thought I, upon returning home. So I pulled forth the blender and made a homemade version of that classic frozen hot chocolate the restaurant is known for. It’s divine, simple to make, and totally addictable. Enjoy!

Frozen Hot Chocolate

3 ounces your favorite chocolate
2 teaspoons hot cocoa mix (I love Stephen’s Milk Chocolate)
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups ice
Whipped cream
Chocolate shavings

Use a sharp knife to chop the chocolate into very small pieces. Place it in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir until melted. Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar. Stir until totally incorporated and melted. Remove the chocolate mixture from the heat. Whisk in 1/2 cup of milk until smooth. Cool completely.

Place the remaining cup of milk, cooled chocolate mixture and the ice in a blender. Blend on high speed until smooth. Top with whipped cream and shaved chocolate, if desired.
