I don't know anyone who loves milk more than I do. We go through gallons a week and in the winter time even more because I love hot chocolate. Seriously, I probably drink one every night once it starts to get cold. When I was browsing pinterest and found this recipe and I just had to try it. Why not have hot chocolate in the summer?When I first tried the recipe it wasn't sweet enough for us [or ice-y enough] so I altered the original recipe and added more chocolate chips and ice. Below is the how to for two large glasses:
3 tablespoons of sugar
1 package of hot cocoa mix [about 3 tbsp]
2 tbsp of butter
1 cup of chocolate chips
3/4 cup of white chocolate chips
12 ounces, fluid can evaporated milk divided
5 cups of ice
Combine the sugar, cocoa mix, and butter in double boiler and stir often until melted and a smooth paste forms. Add chocolate and white chocolate chips and stir. When the chips begin to melt, slowly stir in 1/2 cup of the evaporated milk. Stir until smooth and let it cool.
Place the chocolate-y goodness mixture, the rest of the evaporated milk, and ice in the blender and let it rip. Blend until smooth, pour into glasses and top with a sky high pile of whip cream.
It is really good and it surprisingly tastes just like hot chocolate, except cold and sort of like a shake. A recipe worth trying and one that is in our family cook book.
