Frozen Hot Chocolate

Frozen Hot Chocolate

(Personally,... I have not tried this BUT the next time I shop....the ingredients are on my shopping list!)

This delicious cross between a milk shake and a slushie makes for a surprisingly refreshing (and easy) summertime dessert.
You can add about 1/4 cup of chocolate or coffee liqueur for a boozy kick, if you like.

Serves 4

1 cup whole milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup natural unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Kosher salt
2 cups ice cubes
3 Tbs. bittersweet or semisweet chocolate shavings (made with a vegetable peeler)
Blend the milk, cream, cocoa, sugar, vanilla, and a pinch of salt in a blender until well combined and the sugar is dissolved.
Add the ice and blend just until slushy.
Transfer to glasses, top with the chocolate shavings, and serve immediately with spoons.
