Recipe of the Month: Frozen Hot Chocolate

July 29, 2017 Outdoor Cooking

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

Ingredients

  • 6 fluid ounces milk
  • 1/2 cup hot cocoa mix (or two packets)
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups crushed iced cubes
  • Whipped cream

Directions

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! ;)

I have a lot of experience with construction and renovations, so some contractors find me annoying at best. My outdoor living project was larger than I was able to take on as it entailed adding an outdoor living area, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom with a fireplace and fire pit. It’s built onto an existing structure with a tile roof in a seamless manner. The completed project is amazing, and was featured in the Houzz project of the month for December 2013. It was a very large project so it took a long time to complete, however the process was absolutely painless. In my previous experiences, I have always had issues with miscommunications and added costs, among other things. My experience with Texas Custom Patios included NONE of these issues. The finished project far exceeded my expectations. The workmanship was superior, and the quality of the products is top of the line. I truly highly recommend them.
