FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE INGREDIENTS

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

HOW TO MAKE FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE 

Just 3 quick steps to make this fun drink! 

Step 1

Pull out your best blender and add in the milk, cocoa mix, and ice. Turn the blender on high and let it chop up the ice well.

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! 

Step 2

Once the mixture has become well blended (without any big ice chunks), pour the icy, frozen chocolate into glasses or mugs. I’d recommend using clear cups or glasses since you want to show off your hard work. (Haha!)

If you plan to serve them at a party, use disposable plastic cups to serve so that your guests can toss them when done.

Step 3

Just before serving the chocolate drink, top with Reddi-wip or another spray whip cream.  For a festive hot chocolate slushie, add a paper straw or candy cane just before serving.

How big of a group do you need to make this for? You can definitely make a huge batch in a blender by adding ingredients per serving you want. I’m happy to give more specifics!
