Frozen Hot Chocolate is a delicious and simple recipe that brings you the fun flavors of your favorite hot chocolate all year long.
This frozen hot cocoa recipe can be made in minutes and is as simple as putting stuff in a blender. If that doesn’t scream EASY, then I don’t know what will. Top your glass of icy cold hot chocolate with whipped cream and chocolate shavings for a fun festive appeal.
Making This Frozen Hot Cocoa
To make this frozen hot cocoa, you’re going to want to use a blender to grind up the ice. You can use the requested evaporated milk or use any unflavored milk that you may have on hand. I like using canned evaporated milk because it helps work us through our food storage to keep things from expiring and going to waste.
What Is Frozen Hot Chocolate?
A frozen hot chocolate is a fun oxymoron name given to this cold chocolate milk drink blended with ice. It’s a great way to enjoy “hot chocolate” even in the summer! It’s often made using hot cocoa packets to create that hot chocolate flavor you’d expect but delivered in an icy cold glass.
What Are Some Fun Variations To Make This Recipe
You can make this into a Mexican Hot Chocolate by adding in ¼ tsp of ground cinnamon. You can even omit the vanilla extract and use ¼ tsp of mint extract in its place for a Peppermint Hot Chocolate.
