can’t wait to try this !


i found this recipe about a year ago, bought (most) of the ingredients, but never had the chance to try it out… until now ! on a whim, i thought i’d shake up my sunday evening with a little hot chocolate, frozen-style 😀

this is a copycat recipe, like the wendy’s chili recipe i found and used ages ago. the first time i tried serendipity’s frozen hot chocolate was when i visited las vegas. very tasty and seemed pretty easy to copy, so i went online and searched for it.

when i was making this, the only type of dry chocolate i had was the hershey’s, so i substituted it for the ghirardelli and the scharffenberger cocoa. i know those 2 kinds of chocolate are better quality, but i wasn’t about to run out to the grocery store at 9:30pm just to grab some chocolate. i had to do without for now and if i think about it, purchase the good quality cocoa for next time.

so easy to make and soooo good ! nothing like a cold sip of hot chocolate to bring the weekend to a satisfying close =]

***by the way, i am not in any way wishing it were winter; just because this is “hot chocolate” doesn’t mean i wish the weather was nippier or crisper. if i had my way, i would like for summer to last a whole lot longer than the other seasons.

just wanted to clarify =] ***
