When I was young, my dad would take us to Serendipity in New York City. They are known for their frozen hot chocolate and it’s what we always ordered! A drink was double the size of my head and so delicious. I have such fond memories of this that I wanted to recreate it, with options for making it dairy-free.  If you’ve never had it, think of it as a chocolate slushy. 

This fun seasonal winter drink is a twist on the classic hot chocolate drink, made frozen!

How to Make Frozen Hot Chocolate

Our frozen chocolate recipe uses a combination of real chocolate that is melted and cocoa powder. The chocolate has to be melted first, and then whisked together with the cocoa powder and maple syrup. Then whisk in the milk, gradually. Let the mixture sit for a few minutes to cool.

Combine the remaining ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy, adding more ice if needed.

Serve it with whipped coconut cream or whipped cream, and chocolate shavings. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt, if desired.
