You and your family are going to love it! This post is sponsored by my friends at AE Dairy, you know I love all things AE!
Have you ever had frozen hot chocolate? It’s this cold chocolatey drink originating from a cute little cafe called Serendipity in New York City. They serve it in a huge parfait bowl with straws for everyone. If you’ve never had it, it’s kind of a mix between a chocolate shake and a chocolate smoothie. It has the distinct taste of hot chocolate because you add the hot chocolate powder to it. It’s cool and refreshing and a great treat for a hot summers day. How do you improve an already delicious recipe for frozen hot chocolate? Whole. Chocolate. Milk. You guys AE Dairy’s chocolate milk just got even better, and I didn’t even know that was possible! I’m having a glass of it as I type this and it’s thick, rich, creamy and ahh-mazing! Hands down it’s the best chocolate milk I’ve ever had. Moral of the story? GO get some. ????
You can see the texture of frozen hot chocolate in the photo above. You mix the milk, chocolate milk, and hot chocolate powder with ice in a blender. It’s a unique drink and if you’ve never tried it you have to this summer!
Frozen hot chocolate is not complete without a mound of whipped cream, a drizzle of chocolate sauce and a topping of sprinkles. You can purchase store bought whipped cream, but I don’t recommend it. Making your own is so easy and so much better. You may remember my chocolate and caramel cream parfaits and how I talked about how much better fresh whipped cream made with AE heavy whipping cream is. I still agree with my earlier opinion, friends. it’s just better!
