If you’ve ever been to Serendipity, you know why they’re famous for their frozen hot chocolate. It’s amazing. We were super excited to come across this recipe to re-create the delicious treat:

Frozen Hot Chocolate
Based on the Serendipity original
Technically, this serves one person drinking from an enormous goblet. But you might want to share amongst 4 smaller cups, especially at a party.

3 ounces milk chocolate, roughly chopped
2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups milk, divided
Dash salt
3 cups ice
Whipped cream, peppermint sticks, hot fudge, chocolate squares or shavings, or marshmallow syrup for garnish, if you’re in the mood

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the chocolate, cocoa powder, powdered sugar, salt, and 1/2 cup of the milk, stirring as the chocolate melts so that the whole thing becomes a smooth chocolate base.

Cool this completely to room temperature, or go ahead and put it in an airtight container in the refrigerator to use later.

When ready to drink, put the chocolate base in a blender, and add the remaining 1 cup of milk and the ice. Blend until thoroughly combined and slushy. Spoon the frozen hot chocolate into cups, mugs, or bowls, and garnish as desired.
