Frozen Hot Chocolate


Frozen hot chocolate is one of those treats that brings back a lot of memories for me.  One of my best friends from high school introduced me to this treat, and I LOVED it!!  Back in the day, my friends and I use to go to Dairy Queen all the time, and I learned that they serve this there, but it isn't listed on the menu.  It's this secret, deliciousness that you have to know about and ask for.  It's been my favorite "unlisted" menu item of theirs for a long time.  Needless to say, when I saw a recipe for this I had to try it.  It's a great way to have your hot chocolate when, in fact, you want a cool treat.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 cup (or 4 ounces) of your favorite chocolate (I like milk chocolate!)
2 teaspoons hot chocolate mix
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups ice cubes
whipped cream
chocolate shavings (optional)

Directions:
1.  Melt chocolate in double boiler.  Next, add hot chocolate mix and sugar.  Stir until smooth and thoroughly blended.
2.  Remove from heat, slowly add milk, and stir until. smooth.  Cool to room temperature.
3.  In blender, place remaining 1 cup of milk, ice, and chocolate mixture.
4.  Blend on high speed until smooth and ice is finely crushed.
