Chill out Frozen Hot Chocolate

Total Time

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.

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.

Fantastic recipe! So refreshing. The best part is that I always have the ingredients on hand so I can make this whenever I have the craving for something cool and chocolatey. I actually made mine dairy-free by using my own mix and almond milk.

This was fantastic! I used half the recipe because I only had one pack of hot chocolate but it was amazing. I also added marshmallows and chocolate syrup. I loved it!
