Half-way between a drink and a dessert, this creamy frozen chocolate beverage is topped with a swirl of whipped cream and chocolate chips. 

Have you tried the famous iced hot chocolate at Serendipity 3 or Dunkin’ Donuts and want to make your own at home? Now you can! Plus, this recipe is so simple that even the youngest kids can join in with making it. Too cold outside for a frozen drink? Take a look at this warming Crockpot Peppermint Hot Chocolate, or how about Hot Chocolate on a Stick

INGREDIENTS FOR FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE 

frozen hot chocolate raw ingredients that are labeled

You will need:

  • 1 cup of chocolate milk  
  • 2 packets of hot chocolate mix  
  • 1 ½ cups of crushed ice  
  • Whipped topping  
  • Miniature chocolate chips  
  • High-powered blender 
  • Tall cocktail glass 

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS 

Chocolate Milk: You can use any kind of chocolate milk you wish including non-dairy milks. Almond chocolate milk tastes particularly great. 

Hot Chocolate Mix: This frozen hot chocolate recipe is super chocolatey! If you want something a little less intense, use just one packet of hot chocolate mix instead of two 

Miniature Chocolate Chips: Instead of chocolate chips you could use chocolate shavings, sprinkles, or mini marshmallows. Or just throw the whole lot on top! 

Chocolate Sauce: Squirt a little of this on the inside of the glass before you add the milk for a super-fancy milkshake-bar effect. 

HOW TO MAKE THIS FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE RECIPE

STEP ONE: Chill two glasses in the freezer for at least five minutes.

PRO TIP: Chilling the glasses is optional but worth it for the extra five minutes it takes. Freezing your glass not only keeps your drink nice and cold, it looks pretty cool too.

STEP TWO: Pour the milk, hot chocolate mix, and crushed ice into a blender then blend until smooth. Use a high-quality hot chocolate powder. We recommend Hershey’s Hot Cocoa Mix or Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate Cocoa over any generic store brands.

PRO TIP: If your hot chocolate powder doesn’t come in individual packets you will want to use one to two servings, as described on the box.

STEP THREE: Pour the drink into two chilled glasses. Top with whipped topping and miniature chocolate chips. Add a straw and enjoy!

Almond milk can also be used if preferred. Simply substitute the chocolate milk for 1 cup dark chocolate almond milk and reduce to 1 packet hot chocolate mix instead of two. 
This recipe is quite chocolatey. If it seems like too much, reduce the packets to just 1.
