As the weather cools one of the first beverages I crave is hot chocolate. Frozen hot chocolate is a nice twist to the traditional hot chocolate recipe and the perfect holiday drink. Enjoy the copycat recipe from the infamous Serendipity 3 bake shop in New York.
The frozen hot chocolate at the NYC sweet shop Serendipity 3 has become legendary whether you are a celeb, New Yorker or tourist. Established in 1954 and coveted by the legendary Jackie O and Andy Warhol, as well as splashing onto one of Oprah’s List of Favorite Things.
serendipity (n) the art of making happy discoveries, or finding the unexpectedly pleasant by chance or sagacity
I love finding quick and easy copycat recipes and did someone say chocolate? Yum! Depending upon your preference for brands of chocolate or hot cocoa mix, this recipe can be tweaked to your preferences or what is already stocked in your kitchen.
Ingredients For Copycat Serendipity Frozen Hot Chocolate
- 2 cups milk
- 3 hot cocoa packets
- 3 cups ice
- whipped cream
- chocolate curls (optional)
- Place milk, cocoa mix and ice in a blender. Blend until mostly smooth aiming for consistency of a frozen daiquiri.
- Pour into a glass and top with whipped cream
- Top with chocolate curls or chocolate chips.
- Optional but adds a festive touch is to add the decorative and yummy Christmas mix of chocolate morsels.
Decorative serving glasses add a wonderful touch when serving Frozen Hot Chocolate. I love the presentation of the hot chocolate in clear mugs but depending upon the occasion you can dress up your serving mugs or add a bit of whimsy with themed mugs for the holiday season.
