Sin, Sin, Sin on a Sunday: Frozen Hot Chocolate

One thing that I have noticed in my foodie blogging experience so far, is that there is a bond between foodie bloggers.

This recipe has linked three times that I know of.



3. Angie (myself), at A'lil Country Sugar

And we all help and support each other.


The photos of the finished recipe were very hard to decide on. They are all beautiful and look so tempting.

I spotted this recipe on a favorite blog (Recipe Indulgence), once again over there <----- on the left of the screen, and just had to tell my daughter about it.

She is a chocoholic, and any kind of chocolate beverage....she goes nuts over.

She tries to keep a pitcher of iced coffee in the frig at all times (if I allow her).

The iced coffee is very easy to make. 1 can sweetened condensed milk to 8 cups of strong coffee, crushed ice, and WALLA.....iced coffee at home. We even sneak in a touch of chocolate syrup once in a while. ICED MOCHA.

OK, back to the Frozen Hot Chocolate....

My daughter just had to make this.

We had some left-over dark chocolate mixed with a little peanut butter. That is what she used for her melted chocolate ingredient.

The hint of peanut butter made this treat even more rich than it already is.

But when this recipe is complete, and you start drinking it, OH MY GOODNESS!!

This is definitely a sinful experience. It is so chocolaty and creamy, and chocolaty. Did I mention chocolaty?

Now the question is; Why am I posting a frozen beverage when the snow is about to start?

Because you can always enjoy this in front of a nice cozy fire. Keep your feet warm and all is good.

Frozen Hot Chocolate

1 c. (or 4 ounces) of your favorite chocolate (milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or even the flavored chocolates (raspberry, orange, etc...))
2 tsp hot chocolate mix
1 1/2 TBS sugar
1 1/2 c. milk
3 c. ice cubes
whipped cream
chocolate shavings (opt)

Melt chocolate in double boiler. Next, add hot chocolate mix and sugar. Stir until smooth and thoroughly blended.
Remove from heat, SLOWLY (my daughter poured it all at once) add 1/2 c. milk, and stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
In blender, place remaining 1 c. of milk, ice, and melted chocolate mixture.
Blend on high speed until smooth and ice is finely crushed.

Good Luck~Happy Eating (Drinking)~Enjoy

  2. I think this looks really good and will have to remember it this winter. Here is my question - why would you have leftover chocolate and peanut butter?

    1. Ah...the left over chocolate and peanut butter was from dipping pretzel rods. I had reread the post to figure it out. Too funny! And this is a really old post.
