I maybe a tea lover, but the first hot drink I fell madly in love with is Hot Chocolate! Of course, during the summer that tends to be the last thing you want to drink... until I tried FROZEN Hot Chocolate!
Have you ever had the Frozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity 3? Well if you havn't had the opportunity yet, next time you are in New York City or Las Vegas stop on by and get one! It's positively amazing! My first time having it, was after I saw the movie Serendipity how cliche right? I fell in love with that cafe and decided it was a must see on my next New York trip. Little did I know, that the typical wait, is about 2 hours long. it was worth it though, we got a big Frozen Hot Chocolate to share, and then ate some food as well. It's fun food, full of exciting twist that you dont expect... and come prepared for a extra large portion, because this place is not made for dainty eaters!
A couple weeks ago, I was in Las Vegas to fullfil a major check off my bucket list and see life Celien Dion in Concert at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. Celien Dion was absolutely amazing live and to end the night of our fun girls trip, we went to Serendipity 3 and got dessert. On my way out, I picked up this packet there, so that I could make it up at home for another girls night! If you happen to stop by the store, I suggest picking one of these packages up for a breakdown chocolate moment, but if you dont have one available this is how we make it:
Frozen Hot Chocolate
1 Cup of Hot Chocolate Mix (I love Stephens Dark Chocolate)
1 Cup of Ice
1 Cup of Chocolate Ice Cream (or more if you like)
1/2 Cup of Milk (Whole Milk would make this taste really good, but I use at least 2%)
Chocolate shavings or Coco Powder
Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until nice and smooth. You may need to add more milk, just look for the right consistency. You want it to be thick like a milk shake. Pour into two cups, add whipping cream and chocolate shavings and enjoy!
