Chill out Frozen Hot Chocolate

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Karen..

We serve this in our ice cream parlor and it's very popular. I know there's another frozen hot chocolate recipe here, but this one is different, as it's made with hot cocoa mix.

I was wanting hot chocolate but I didn't really want a warm drink, enter this recipe! I've been to Serendipity and had the famous hot chocolate and I've also used their "drink mix", while good it's also expensive. What I love about this recipe is that it says to use crushed ice! If you crush it in your blender first, then add everything it works so much better! I'll save this recipe to share with friends and family!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 fluid ounces milk
  • 12 cup hot cocoa mix (or 2 packets...we use Swiss Miss Milk Chocolate flavor)
  • 1 12-2 cups crushed ice cubes
  • whipped cream (optional)
  • additional hot cocoa mix (optional)


  1. Pour milk into blender.
  2. Add hot cocoa mix and ice.
  3. Blend first at low speed and then high speed until ice is finely crushed and slushy.
  4. Pour into tall glass and top with whipped cream and a dusting of hot cocoa mix, if desired.
  5. Serve with a straw and enjoy!
  6. P.S. This recipe was originally posted using small ice cubes. At our shop we have a commercial blender that has no problem getting through these. Since most people have regular blenders, I have changed it to crushed ice.
