Sometimes we crave things at the wrong time of year… Am I right?

For instance, right now when I should be dreaming about berry desserts and watermelon I have my heart set on pumpkin cheesecake bars. Obviously I could go ahead and make them, but it just seems wrong to make pumpkin anything until at least September.

However, I have found a way to fudge on these unspoken seasonal rules to some degree. Like serving hot things cold, when it’s best suited to do so.

Easy

Say hello to Frozen Hot Chocolate… A normally warm beverage recreated in a frozen state of being.

By this time of summer, you’ve probably had fresh fruit smoothies and milkshakes so much you are ready for a change of pace. Frozen Hot Chocolate is just the thing to dazzle the senses and cool you off on a hot day!

Simply melt dark chocolate in a small pot with cocoa powder, sugar, milk, and a bit of instant coffee granules. The coffee granules are added to enhance the deep chocolatey flavor, but do not overpower.

Then pour the hot chocolate mixture into a blender and add more cold milk, vanilla extract, and ice. Puree until the mixture it thick and frosty.

Pour the Frozen Hot Chocolate into glasses and serve as-is, or topped with whipped cream and all your favorite sweet garnishes.

The kids love them with whipped cream and sprinkles. For an enticing visual effect, I like to shmear hot fudge sauce around the inside of the glasses and let it drip down the side before adding the Frozen Hot Chocolate.

Frozen Hot Chocolate can also be “turtled” by adding chocolate sauce and caramel sauce to the insides of the glasses, then topping each glass with whipped cream and chopped pecans!

Awesome
