To keep in the spirit of our Project of the Month (Christmas in July) … we decided we would cool things down with a sweet twist on a traditional holiday treat. July (and really the next few months to come) are too hot to drink anything other than something ice cold. Enjoy this month’s recipe poolside, and before you know it the holidays will be here to enjoy the real deal.
Frozen Hot Chocolate
- 6 fluid ounces milk
- 1/2 cup hot cocoa mix (or two packets)
- 1 1/2 – 2 cups crushed iced cubes
- Whipped cream
Pour milk into blender. Add hot cocoa mix and ice. Blend first at low speed and then high speed until ice is finely crushed and slushy. Pour into a tall glass and top with whipped cream and a dusting of hot cocoa mix. Serve with a straw and enjoy! Happy hot holidays! ;)
