Frozen Hot Chocolate Recipe

This frozen hot chocolate, based on the famous frosty treat from New York’s most adorable ice cream shop is perfect for sharing with your one true love.


  • 1 3.5 oz bar milk chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 oz semi-sweet baking chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk, divided
  • 3 cups ice
  • Whipped cream
  • Chocolate shavings


In a double boiler, melt all the chocolate, stirring frequently. Remove from the heat and stir in 1/4 cup milk. Add ice, remaining milk, and cooled chocolate mixture to a blender. Whiz until frothy. Pour into a tall glass, and top with whipped cream. Garnish with chocolate shavings.

Notes: I used organic milk chocolate with a hint of hazelnut, and made my own unsweetened whipped cream with a dash of vanilla extract.

  1. This looks freakin’ delicious and perfect for Valentine’s Day, though I don’t think I’ll be able to wait until 2014 to try it. Congratulations for making it out last year when Violet was just a month old! We’re still having a hard time getting out with a 1 *year* old – not good!

    1. You’ll notice I didn’t mention any plans for this year. Some things were a little easier when she was a snoozy newborn…
