One sip of this cool concoction had Oprah wanting to "dance on the chandeliers!" After 50 years of keeping the recipe for its Frrrozen Hot Chocolate a secret, Serendipity 3 restaurant in New York City finally spills the beans on how to make this much-loved drink at home. And it's super-simple!
- 6 pieces (1/2-ounce) chocolate , a variety of your favorites
- 2 teaspoons store-bought hot chocolate mix
- 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 3 cups ice
- Whipped cream
- Chocolate shavings
Chop the chocolate into small pieces. Place it in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted. Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar. Stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and slowly add ½ cup of milk until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
In a blender, place the remaining cup of milk, the room-temperature chocolate mixture and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Pour into a giant goblet and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
