Frozen Hot Chocolate Recipe

John sent me his recipe for Frozen Hot Chocolate. You have to try this, you won't be disappointed. I'm calling it "John's Frozen Hot Chocolate" because he really created his own version of this recipe. Seriously, y'all... forget about the powder mixes, this recipe is SO much better.

John's Frozen Hot Chocolate

Ingredients: The biggest secret here is to NOT go for the girly, diet stuff. Get rich, heavy whipped cream and don't even think about buying the light condensed milk.

3 oz. assorted chocolate bars - 1 oz. dark, 1 oz. semi-sweet, and 1 oz. milk chocolate (I like Symphony for milk, and then pick out some of the better dark and semi-sweet. Don't skimp here!)

1 can sweetened condensed milk

3 cups ice

Whipped cream

Chocolate shavings

Preparation: Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring occasionally until melted. Add half of the condensed milk, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended. Remove from heat and slowly add the remaining half of the condensed milk and stir until smooth. Cool about 5 minutes.

In a blender place the chocolate mixture and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. If it is too thick (think milkshake) add a splash of milk and blend again. Pour into a giant goblet (a large red wine glass works well). Fill the glass to 2/3 and then pile on as much whipped cream as you can possibly fit. Sprinkle with the chocolate shavings. A soft-mint peppermint stick makes a great garnish as well.

Looks luscious! I'm learning how to window shop desserts. I guess I'd better keep shopping.
