Frozen Hot Chocolate

I tried a new recipe tonight that was yummy. It certainly won't help me get ready for swimsuit season, but it was good! I got it from this blog, which was linked from this blog which I first found from this post from Emily. How's that for confusing?! The 2nd blog mentioned above just happens to be someone that we knew when we were first married, crazy!

Frozen Hot Chocolate
3/4 cup cream (the kind that says "whipping cream")
1/4 cup milk
6 tbsp. cocoa powder (you can use more or less to adjust the chocolate flavor)
7 tbsp. sugar (can use less to increase the chocolate flavor)
1 tbsp. malted milk powder (I use the Carnation brand, it's found by the hot chocolate in the grocery store)
3 cups ice
1. Blend the cream, milk, cocoa, sugar, and malted milk powder in a blender until nice and creamy (1-2 minutes).
2. Add ice a little at a time and blend until the mixture is thick and smooth (I crushed the ice in the blender before step 1, and added it back again at step 2 to get nice crushed ice)
If desired serve with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.

YUM!!! I saw something about frozen hot chocolate on Oprah, but it was for the restaurant Serendipity in New York. You can actually order their frozen hot chocolate packets online! But, I'll have to give this one a try. Yeah, loved that other blog! So fun! And I didn't comment on the posts with the kids' dance festival, but it was so cute. And Mierae just wanted to watch the videos over and over!
