Steps

Making Basic Frozen Hot Chocolate

  1. Pour 2 cups (475 milliliters) of milk into a blender.You can use any type of milk you want: 1%, 2%, or even whole.
  2. Add 3 packets of hot chocolate mix.Since each brand is a little different, ensure that your hot chocolate packets are about 1 ounce (25 grams) each.
    • For extra flavor, consider adding 2 teaspoons of pure chocolate extract and/or 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  3. Top it off with 3 cups (420 grams) of ice.If you don't have a very powerful blender, it might be a good idea to use crushed ice instead.
  4. Blend the mixture until it is smooth and slushy.Blend at a low speed first to break up the ice, then at a high speed to finish it off.From time to time, you may have to pause your blender, and scrape any unmixed hot chocolate down the sides with a rubber spatula.
    • Your frozen hot chocolate won't be completely smooth like a milkshake of smoothie. It will have a slight grainy texture to it.
  5. Pour the frozen hot chocolate into several tall glasses, and serve it immediately.You can serve them as they are, or garnish them further with a swirl of whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and/or chocolate curls.

Making Gourmet Frozen Hot Chocolate

  1. Melt 3 ounces (90 grams) of semi-sweet chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring often.Alternatively, you can melt the chocolate in a double boiler: fill a saucepan with 2 inches (5.08 centimeters) of water, and set a glass, heat-safe bowl on top. Place the chocolate into the bowl, and stir it until it melts.
  2. Remove the saucepan from heat, then stir in the cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons (30 grams) of sugar.Make sure that you are using pure, unsweetened cocoa powder. Save the remaining 2 teaspoons (8 grams) of sugar for later.
    • If you cannot find any, and only have hot chocolate mix on hand, use 2 teaspoons of hot chocolate mix and 1½ tablespoons (23 grams) of sugar instead.
  3. Slowly stir in ½ cup (120 milliliters) of milk.You can use any type of milk you want for this, although whole milk will give you the richest-tasting frozen hot chocolate. Do not pour in the rest of the milk just yet.
    • If the mixture starts to turn solid, place the saucepan on the burner, and turn the heat to low. Continue stirring it until it melts again.
  4. Pour in the remaining cup (240 milliliters) of milk.If you placed the saucepan back on the burner during the last step, take it offbeforestirring the rest of the milk in. This should chill the mixture down.
    • If the mixture is still warm, place it into the freezer for a few minutes until it turns cold. Do not let it freeze, however.
  5. Blend the cold hot chocolate with 3 cups (420 milliliters) of ice using a blender.Start at a slow speed to break up the ice, then finish it off with a high speed. Your frozen hot chocolate won't be perfectly smooth like a milkshake or smoothie; it will have a slight grainy texture to it.
    • If your blender isn't very strong, use crushed ice instead.
  6. Beat the remaining 2 teaspoons (8 grams) of sugar with ½ cup (120) milliliters of heavy cream.You can do this by hand with a whisk or with an electric mixer. You can also use a food processor fitted with whisks. Keep beating the sugar and cream until stiff peaks form.
  7. Pour the frozen hot chocolate into tall glasses, then spoon the whipped cream on top.You can serve the frozen hot chocolate as is, or you can garnish it further with a drizzle of chocolate sauce, a sprinkle of chocolate curls, or a maraschino cherry.
