Frozen Hot Chocolate? Really?
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. Which means that you don’t need to wait until winter to get your fill of hot cocoa in.
If I remember right, the cute little Serendipity restaurant in NYC made frozen hot chocolate ever so popular. If you search for recipes, you’ll find them indeed. While you may find a good copycat recipe, I’m all about simple here on So Festive! And that’s why you are going to love my simple version of frozen hot chocolate.
Simple Frozen Hot Chocolate
What makes this recipe so “cool?” Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

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:
- your favorite hot cocoa mix (or try this easy 4-ingredient homemade hot cocoa mix recipe here)
- milk (or almond milk)
- blender (I use and love this one!)
- whip cream, optional
- striped straw or candy cane for extra festiveness
How to Make
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.
Pull out your best blender and add in the milk, hot chocolate 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!
Once the mixture has become well blended (without any big ice chunks), pour the icy, frozen hot 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.
Just before serving, top with Reddi-wip or another spray whip cream. Then add a festive straw or candy cane to make your drink more fun!
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!
