Frozen Hot Chocolate
This frozen hot chocolate with whipped cream, chocolate sauce and chocolate curls is the stuff hot summer days are made for!!
Creamy and delicious! Hot chocolate powder and milk blended together with ice for a cooling frappuccino-style drink.
So much quicker and cheaper than heading to your local drive-thru – plus no chance of a frappuccino-related accident taking place on the seat of your car. Trust me, milk is not a fun thing to try to get out of a car seat!!
Ideally you want to use sweetened hot chocolate powder to ensure your drink isn't bitter, but you can replace with cocoa powder and a little sugar if you prefer.
My kids love this frozen hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream and chocolate curls or sprinkles (of course!).
You can buy ready-made chocolate curls, but if you want to make your own chocolate curls, simply use a vegetable peeler to shave a block of chocolate.
I have one from 5 years ago that is still good with $2.53 on it. Someone's getting it this year!
Here's hoping for lots of hot weather so we can make plenty of these frozen hot chocolates!

- 4 sachets (or 2.5 heaped tbsp) of hot chocolate cocoa powder (the sweetened kind)
- 4 tbsp chocolate sauce
- Whipped cream

- Place the ice, milk and hot chocolate powder into a blender. Blend for 1 minute until thoroughly combined.
- Drizzle 1 tbsp of chocolate sauce around the rim of two large glasses. Pour the frozen hot chocolate into the two glasses.
