Frozen Hot Cocoa


I know it is like Arctic Tundra 2014 in most parts of the US, well that includes us over here. Even with all the snow and chilliness, I still really craved a Frozen Hot Cocoa.

I figured I could just put on more layers, light a fire, and turn up the heat. Then it wouldn't matter if it were below zero outside. I would still be toasty enough to treat myself to a frozen hot cocoa.

And what a treat it was.

Guys, so good. I mean like SOOO good. Like Serendipity's good. Okay, so I actually have never had a Frozen Hot Cocoa from Serendipity's. Even though I have been to NYC, I was only there for 4 hours and there wasn't time to fit that in. I probably should go back there someday and have one.

Until then...

...well I can't imagine it tastes any yummier than this Frozen Hot Cocoa I made in my very own kitchen, so I am good.

SOOOO good.


I was skeptical how much a frozen Hot Cocoa could taste like a Hot Cocoa. Guys, IT DOES.

This frozen concoction tastes just like hot cocoa. Richer, and thicker, milkshake-like hot cocoa.

We very happily all slurped and sucked every drop of this Frozen Hot Cocoa down.

So even though it is all frozen outside, at least in most places, it is worth turning the inside of your house into a tropical get away to justify making yourself this yummy Frozen Hot Cocoa.

1/4 cup cinnamon?!

Larissa@Just Another Day in Paradise said...

Margaret,
Yup, one cup of cinnamon. I promise. That is what helps with the hot cocoa taste!
