fifth wedding anniversary, I made us this Frozen Hot Chocolate. For years I had gone on and on about this drink and thought it was finally time to introduce Alex to its deliciousness. The drink will take on the flavor of whatever hot chocolate mix you use so it makes for fun experimenting. The sad thing is that after I made this, having the real deal at Serendipity 3 was kind of a let down. It was as if all the magic was gone because I knew how to recreate the drink at home (at a fraction of the cost too!)

Place milk into blender. Add hot chocolate packets and blend until combined. Add ice and blend until ice is blended into tiny chunks. Pour evenly into 4 glasses on top of plates to catch any dripping frozen hot chocolate.
