~ serendipity frozen hot chocolate ~

Frozen hot chocolate is literally a candy bar in a cup! Below I’ve listed the ingredients for the original frozen hot chocolate from the famous Serendipity 3 Cafe in New York city. I personally like mine even MORE chocolaty so I double the chocolate. Don’t be afraid to tweak the ingredients to your liking. The quality of chocolate you use in this recipe really does make a difference, and don’t be tempted to use low fat milk.

3 oz. good quality (Godiva, Ghirardelli, Lindt) chocolate pieces (I doubled this to 6 oz.)

2 teaspoons hot chocolate mix (I doubled this)

1 and 1/2 Tablespoons sugar

1 and 1/2 cups cold whole milk

3 cups ice

real whipped cream

chocolate shavings

Chop the chocolate into small pieces. Place it in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted. Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar. Stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and slowly add ½ cup of milk until smooth. Cool to room temperature.

In a blender, place the remaining cup of milk, the room-temperature chocolate mixture and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Pour into a giant goblet or cocoa mug and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Serve with a spoon and a straw. Makes 2 big servings.

    This recipe sounds amazing!
    As I sell fruit liqueurs I wonder if adding some orange Whisky liqueur or strawberry liqueur to the mix would be ok & if so, how much & should I reduce the equal amount of milk used?

      Hi Denise! 🙂

      I’m not sure, as I’ve never tried that. I guess I’d just try adding a little of your extract to the existing recipe as it is. A teaspoon or two isn’t really going to make much of a difference in consistency. Thanks for visiting! ~M
