Have you ever tried your hot chocolate frozen? Hot frozen chocolate is easy and very fast to make!
I recently discovered the amazing frozen hot chocolate at a local bakery. And then I went a little nuts. I probably spent all my pocket money for the whole month in one week, buying this stuff.
I’m exaggerating. (No I’m not. Yes I am. No I’m not.)
It didn’t take me very many days to decide that I needed to learn to make this at home. Like NOW.
Of course, when I make it at home, I still don’t save much money, since I have to make enough for my kids too, but I do save time. I just have to keep myself stocked up with hot chocolate mix and canned whipped cream.
I actually regret teaching my kids this recipe, because now every other time I come in the kitchen, I find empty cocoa packets on the counter, a dirty blender in the sink, and empty whipped cream can, and most importantly, no frozen hot chocolate for me.
Teach me to be nice to my kids.
By the way, are my kids the only ones who think there is an everlasting amount of whipped cream in that can? They always act like canned whipped cream grows on trees, so to speak.
I generally have to threaten them with bodily harm to keep them from squirting whipped cream directly onto their tongues.
We’re sooooo classy.
