Frozen Hot Chocolate? 

Say what? Frozen hot chocolate? Isn’t that a little ironic? Keep reading, because you are in for a treat.

Frozen hot chocolate has all the deliciousness of hot cocoa, but with an icy, refreshing twist to it.

If I remember right, the cute little Serendipity restaurant in NYC made frozen hot chocolate ever so popular. If you search for frozen hot chocolate recipes, you’ll find them indeed. While you may find a good copycat recipe like this one from Smitten, I’m all about simple here on So Festive! And that’s why you are going to love my version of frozen hot chocolate.

What you need to make Frozen Hot Chocolate

To make this refreshing drink that’s good any time during the year, all you’ll need is:

How to Make Frozen Hot Chocolate

This icy, chocolately goodness will take less than 5 minutes to make!  That’s pretty awesome when you need a quick treat for a party. Or late-night snack.

First, you’ll toss all the ingredients in the blender, except the whipped cream. Depending on your blender, you may need to stop and give the ice a good stir so that it becomes well-mixed. You don’t want big chunks of ice in your drink!

Then, pour into glasses or mugs. I’d recommend using clear cups since you want to show off your hard work. (Wink wink!)

Finally, top with Reddi-wip or another spray whip cream. Then add a festive straw or candy cane.


Hot Chocolate Is Not Just For Winter!

Whoever says you can only drink hot chocolate in the winter is wrong! 🙂  I served this Frozen Hot Chocolate at our Christmas in July party and they were a hit!

Save this recipe for a party or midnight snack. You’ll thank me later!

It will quickly become a favorite go-to party drink!
