Frozen Hot Chocolate


  • 3 cups of ice.
  • 2 cups of whole milk (skim, 2 percent, and dairy-free milks can also be substituted).
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate syrup.
  • 3 hot cocoa packets.
  • Whipped cream.
  • Chocolate shavings.
  • Garnish: chocolate syrup.

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Create the chocolate shavings ahead of time. Use whatever kind of chocolate you wish. It’s easiest to create the shavings from a bar of chocolate. Use a grater or special chocolate shaver to create the shavings. 
  3. Add the ice, whole milk, chocolate syrup, and hot chocolate packets to a blender. Use a blender that can easily crush ice or make smoothies. Crush until smooth. 
  4. Drizzle chocolate syrup around the rim of four glasses so that the syrup will drip down the sides.  Pour the frozen hot chocolate into each glass. Top each glass with a generous amount of whipped cream. Sprinkle the chocolate shavings over the top of the whipped cream and serve with a straw immediately!
