Frozen Hot Chocolate

I love Hot Chocolate but it is Summertime. Not that that has ever stopped me before from drinking Hot Chocolate in Summer or Spring. Today I was not in the mood for a hot drink and I wanted to curve my craving for Chocolate and satisfy my thirst with a more summery twist. I wish I could tell you the exact measurements for my concoction but remember, I hardly ever measure. 

Here are the ingredients though:
Hot Chocolate Packet
Ghirardeli Ground Chocolate
Tad bit of Sugar

You can find recipes online if you are not as adventuresome as I am with dumping things into my blender (usually not knowing if it will taste right) as I often do. Here is a good one: Serendipity 3's Frozen Hot Chocolate (Have you seen the movie Serendipity? This is the little shop they went to in the movie).

What I did with my ingredients is this:

I blended a generous amount of ice and milk in my blender until it was smooth. Adding the milk just until my blender could freely move around the liquid without freezing up. After that I poured one packet of Hot Chocolate mix with the Ghirardeli ground chocolate and the few shakes of sugar. I blended until that was well mixed with the ice and milk. I proceeded to dump the whole amount into a root-beer mug and continued to eat it until it was all gone (my favorite part).

I have a problem with cold things. I have inherited a nasty case of shivers from my wonderful mother. Every time I get cold I shiver up and down my spine. My muscles tighten and can hardly move. I start coughing and my throat starts to close up (don't worry, never enough where I can't breath). It is not very fun. Even though I suffered from shivers while I was drinking my Frozen Hot Chocolate, it did not stop me from drinking it all up. It was that good.

If you have not experienced the yummy goodness of Frozen Hot Chocolate or are craving it again, whip out your blender and make yourself some. Or if you do not choose to make this delicious treat for whatever reason watch the movie Serendepity and envy their Frozen Hot Chocoate.
