This was on Good Morning America by Chef and author Stephen Bruce in honor of his business turning 50! This is wonderful! Enjoy. This desert makes 2 to 21/2 cups, enough for 1 to 8 guests

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop chocolate into small pieces and place in the top of a double boiler over simmering water.
  2. Stir occasionally until melted.
  3. Add the cocoa and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended.
  4. Remove from heat and slowly add 1/2 cup of the milk and stir until smooth.
  5. Cool to room temperature.
  6. In a blender place the remaining cup of milk, the room temperature chocolate mixture, and the ice.
  7. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri, pour into a giant goblet and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
  8. Whipped cream: Combine the cream and the vanilla and mix well with an electric mixer with a whisk attachment.
  9. Start whipping the cream on medium speed.
  10. Add the corn syrup slowly while beating.
  11. Whip until the cream holds soft peaks.
  12. Slather, drop and dollop onto whatever your heart desires.
  13. Enjoy with a straw or a spoon!
  14. Prep and cooking time are my guess.

This is a fun recipe to try! A different dessert, but yummy! As in another review, I don't let the chocolate cool completely (how can you wait!)Thanks!

This recipe is crazy fantastic. After melting the chocolate and adding the milk, I only let it cool long enough til I have all the other ingredients in the blender and add the warm chocolate mixture. What happens is when this mixture hits the ice and blends you have teeny tiny pieces of chocolate suspended in the frozen hot chocolate. This happened by accident, but my whole family thinks it's even better than the original!

I recently saw Serendipity III on Food Tv and they showed this Frozen Hot Chocolate. I instantly hit Recipe_Zarr to see if there was a clone recipe, I was plesently surprised not only to find a recipe but the actual recipe from Serendipity's chef. The recipe calls for store bought hot cocoa mix, but I didn't have any. I used a recipe from Alton Brown for Hot Cocoa mix,1977,FOOD_9936_17908,00.html Also I don't have a double boiler, so I used a small steel mixing bowl placed in a medium sauce pan. The previous review below stated that this is to much work, and one can go to $tarbucks and get a similar drink, but I've never had a drink at $tarbucks, that was this rich and delicious. It may take a bit of work but it's well worth the effort. If you love to cook and love chocolate as much as I do, then you owe it to your self to at least try this drink once.
