Frozen Hot Chocolate Recipe

I admit I had NO idea what Frozen Hot Chocolate was until I made it.

Frozen Hot Chocolate is such a fun delight! My daughter first had it at Serendipity 3 in New York City, but we made a fun version at home too.

Frozen Hot Chocolate is a bit of an oxymoron, because how can something be hot and cold at the same time? Well, this is witchcraft right here. It is cold, I assure you, but tastes just like the hot chocolate that you know and love. It uses hot cocoa mix and syrup, and makes a concoction over ice. It’s not a milkshake, though, because there is no ice cream involved. Somehow this just works perfectly. Back in the day, before COVID, Cassidy used to take Scarlet to NYC every holiday season to do all the Christmas things. For the last year or so before COVID, he took Des as well. I love the idea of how much fun they had enjoying some delicacies, such as this one! So this year, since it’s the second year in a row of missing the big NYC trip, I’ve decided to make these myself!

As you may remember, Scarlet and Cassidy have a tradition of playing hooky on a weekday in December and taking Manhattan. Finish the Sentence Friday #FTSF
