Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Frozen White Hot Chocolate

Frozen White Hot Chocolate


I am not a fan of winter. If I had my way, it would be summer year round where I live. What I do love to do most on a cold winter day is whip up a batch of hot cocoa and settle in with a good book. I’ve had such a sweet tooth lately, but with the really hot summer we are having, even just thinking about sipping a cup of hot chocolate is almost unbearable. However, if you are a regular reader, you know that I love me some drink recipes, and where there is a will, there’s a way. I have to be careful how often I make these because they are SUPER YUMMY! I could drink them all day!

Frozen White Hot Chocolate Recipe


Ingredients:


6 half-ounce pieces of high quality white chocolate (I use Baker's)
2 tbs half and half
1 envelope store bought hot chocolate mix
1 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups ice
Whipped cream (optional)
Chocolate shavings (optional)


Place the white chocolate pieces and the half and half into a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 1 minute, stopping to stir half way through. Continue to heat until melted and smooth. Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended. Remove from heat and slowly add 1/2 cup of the milk and stir 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. Pour into a cup and top with homemade whipped cream and chocolate shavings.



ALSO- I am so excited to be the “Featured Friend of the Week” over at Create With Joy! She featured my Strawberry Cheesecake Shake this week! Woo Hoo! Be sure to stop over at her Friendship Friday Hop and link up or just check out some of the awesome post links! Thanks so much Joy!

    1. That's what my husband told me when I tried to pass some on to him. He eventually had a small glass and had to restrain himself from having more.

      Good luck with your weight loss!

  9. We were just talking about hot chocolate tonight (because it's getting chilly outside). I'm with you on the cold weather thing, I lived in FL. most of my adult life and it's really hard to get used to the whole 'up north' thing (where we live now), but I am starting to really enjoy the seasons. Maybe someday I'll love winter, who knows? (crossing my fingers and toes it happens).

    This drink is great, I can't believe you found a way to make hot chocolate into frozen hot chocolate...I've never heard of such a thing and am guessing there's marketability in there somewhere, especially since it tastes good too. Cool. :)
