  • 4-5 ounces best-quality chocolate I used one 4.4 oz. Lindt Milk Chocolate bar
  • 2 teaspoons store bought hot chocolate mix
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk
  • 3 cups ice
  • Spray Whipped Cream optional, for garnish
  • Chocolate shavings optional, for garnish


  • 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.
  • Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar, stirring constantly until combined (consistency will be smooth).
  • Remove from heat and slowly add 1/2 cup of the milk, stirring until well mixed. Cool to room temperature (about 15-30 minutes).
  • 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!
