Description

My take on the famous treat from a NYC restaurant. Hot chocolate flavor served up icy cold!

Ingredients

  • 3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
  • 1 package Hot Cocoa Mix (about 3 Tablespoons)
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • ⅓ cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • ⅓ cups White Chocolate Chips
  • 12 ounces, fluid Can Evaporated Milk, Divided
  • 4-½ cups Ice
  • Whipped Cream, To Taste
  • Mini Marshmallows, To Taste

Preparation

Combine sugar, cocoa mix, and butter in the top of a double boiler that is set over gently boiling water. Stir often until melted and a smooth paste forms. Add semi-sweet & white chocolate chips; stir. When chips begin to melt, slowly stir in 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. Stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature.

Combine the chocolate base mixture, the remaining evaporated milk and ice in a blender (you can do this in batches) and cover. Blend until smooth. Pour into frosty glasses. Top each with whipped cream. Sprinkle with additional chopped chocolate chips & mini marshmallows, if desired.

Oh this looks divine! There is a place in Orleans (Cape Cod) called The Hot Chocolate Sparrow and they make a mean frozen hot chocolate. I’m excited to try this – with a pinch of sea salt blended in! (The perfect way to balance out that sweet chocolate nectar!)

I didn’t feel that this was chocolate-y enough as written. I ended up not adding all the milk because it was tasting too diluted and also adding a little extra cocoa powder. If I were going to make it again, I’d replace the white chocolate chips with semisweet. But, I think we’ll just stick with chocolate milkshakes in the future.

I’m a nanny and my nanny girls picked this recipe to try out to beat the summer heat! So glad we did. Very good and a good reprieve from my skin melting off.

LOVE THIS!! I’ve been wanting to try this recipe for awhile, but have been too busy. Made it today and my only regret was not trying it a few weeks ago when it was a sweltering 99+ in the shade! Sooo delicious! My dad even loved it–said it was better than a milkshake and I never thought I’d hear him say that about anything! One of the things that makes it so great is that it doesn’t leave you feeling stuffed like a milkshake does. Next time I might try adding a bit of coffee to one for my mom. Thanks a bunch!

Perfect ending to a hot & steamy day in WI! :) I made 2 tweaks . . . first – I didn’t have unsalted butter, so I used salted & second – I used low fat evaporated milk . . . even with these minor changes the recipe received rave reviews. Thank you for great recipe!! :)
