Serendipity's Frozen Hot Chocolate
Years ago when my friends and I visited NYC, we came upon this quaint dessert shop called Serendipity. (Many of you have seen the movie with Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack.) Every dessert on the menu is HUGE, and can be split they say by two, but I say by three!
This frozen hot chocolate is also quite monstrous and can be poured into one big ice cream bowl with two straws to share, or pour it into two or more smaller glasses. It's up to you!
Doctor up store-bought hot cocoa packets and use these simple ingredients to make a homemade frozen cocoa drink.
- Semi-sweet chocolate
- Granulated sugar
- Hot chocolate mix
