The last week or so has seen temps here in the northeast in the 80’s and 90’s. Some might think that’s too warm but I remember the sub-zero days of January and February only too well. And while I won’t say it’s too warm, I will admit it is, in fact, warm. Warm enough, actually, for a nice frozen drink. But what to make.

If it had been a work day, I would have popped into the café in our factory store and had a vanilla malt which the girls make perfectly for me, extra extra malt if you please! But it wasn’t. I was home with limited supplies in my freezer and even more limited energy for going out. And then I remembered the cold drink recipe one of our Chocolatiers had told me about. So simple and easily made with what I had in house. I had milk, ice and a variety of flavors of our Hot Chocolate Mix. Here it is:

Frozen Hot Chocolate
1 Cup Milk (don’t heat)
2 heaping Tablespoons Hot Chocolate Mix (or double the recommended amount)
1 Cup Ice

Add all to blender and mix until smooth. And voila!

So, first I started out using our Aztec Hot Chocolate. It’s great hot. I could only imagine it cold. I mixed it up and it was delicious. And being the weekend and my being just a few years above the legal drinking age (no comments please!) I opted for a little adult garnish in the form of Kahlua. It was the perfect accessory to my day. The warm spiciness of the Aztec Hot Chocolate mixed with the ice had a great cooling effect.

No matter how you make it – Aztec, Mocha, Traditional or one of our Dark Chocolate Hot Chocolates – they all make an awesome Frozen Hot Chocolate, with or without the spike. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
