Best hot chocolate to order online
I'm sick and the idea of a nice rich hot cocoa sounds delightful. What's the best online place to order from and what do you recommend?
Yummy! Frrrozen Hot Chocolate at Serendipity 3
One sip of this cool concoction had Oprah wanting to "dance on the chandeliers!" After 50 years of keeping the recipe for its Frrrozen Hot Chocolate a secret, Serendipity 3 restaurant in New York City finally spills the beans on how to make this much-loved drink at home. And it's super-simple!
6 half-ounce pieces of a variety of your favorite chocolates
2 teaspoons of store-bought hot chocolate mix
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 cups milk
3 cups of cups of ice
Chop the chocolate into small pieces. Place it in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted. Add the hot chocolate mix and sugar. Stir until completely melted. Remove from heat and slowly add 1⁄2 cup of milk until smooth. Cool to room temperature.
In a blender, place the remaining cup of milk, the room-temperature chocolate mixture and the ice. 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.
