Although the temperatures are dropping and the craving for hot beverages seems to be at an all-time high, there are some of us that still crave a cool, lusciously frozen drink, no matter the season. This Frozen Signature Hot Chocolate is just that; packed with chocolate flavor, made with cold milk and ice, it’s a favorite among young ones, and adults alike.
This frozen drink is unlike any other you’ve tasted because it’s made with whole chocolates, not just chocolate chips. So depending on which chocolates from the Signature Chocolate Collection you choose to throw in the blender, your flavor notes will slightly vary. Choose all caramel for a caramel frozen hot chocolate, or throw in some almond and pecan chocolates for a nutty flavor. Whatever you choose, just know it will be amazing. Little bits of chocolate mingle with crushed ice, sweet cocoa powder, and the perfect whipped cream dollop rounds it all out.
