When I started planning for this year’s #Choctoberfest, my kids were very interested in what I was going to make. I mentioned frozen hot chocolate and they’ve been begging me to make it for over a week.
My kids loved these drinks and are now begging me to make them every night. They gave me a rave review of them as I can’t drink regular milk. It was also a great way to use up some of the pints of milk I’ve been getting from our school district’s grab and go lunch program. I will need to make myself one the next time with non-dairy milk.
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tsp hot cocoa mix
1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 cups milk, divided
3 cups ice cubes
In a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate chips in 30 second intervals. Once melted, stir in the hot cocoa mix and sugar. The mixture will be thick. Add in 1/2 cup and milk and stir to combine until smooth. Allow to cool to room temperature.
In a blender, add in the chocolate milk mixture, remaining cup of milk and 3 cups of ice cubes. Blend on high speed until the mixture is frozen and smooth. Divide between two cups and top with whipped cream. Drizzle chocolate syrup over the top if desired.
