Recipe type: Beverage
Serves: 2-4
Ingredients
  • 4-5 ounces best-quality chocolate (I used one 4.4 oz. Lindt Milk Chocolate bar)
  • 2 teaspoons store bought hot chocolate mix
  • 1½ tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1½ cups whole milk
  • 3 cups ice
  • Spray Whipped Cream (optional, for garnish)
  • Chocolate shavings (optional, for garnish)
Instructions
  1. Chop/break the chocolate bar into small pieces and melt in a small heavy saucepan or in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted.
  2. Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar, stirring constantly until combined (consistency will be smooth).
  3. Remove from heat and slowly add ½ cup of the milk, stirring until well mixed. Cool to room temperature (about 15-30 minutes).
  4. In a blender, place the remaining 1 cup of milk, creamy chocolate mixture, and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Immediately pour into one giant goblet (to share), or in 4 small cups. Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings, if desired. Enjoy!
