Frrrozen Hot Chocolate
3 ounces of your favorite chocolate
2 teaspoons store-bought hot chocolate mix (good quality)
1½ tablespoons sugar
1½ cups milk
3 cups ice cubes
Lightly sweetened whipped cream
Chop chocolate into small pieces and place in top of double boiler over simmering water, stirring occasionally until melted. Add chocolate mix and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended. Remove from heat and slowly add ½ cup milk, stirring until smooth. Cool to room temperature. In blender, place the remaining 1 cup milk, room-temperature chocolate mixture and ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Pour into a giant goblet and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Enjoy with a spoon or a straw.
