~ 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 ยฝ 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! ๐Ÿ™‚

      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
