my daughter saw something on Oprah on tv about frozen hot chocolate in new york, at serendipity (she thinks this is what it is called). She thought they looked great and wanted to try one, as we hadnt heard of it before. Being in Australia, we cant just pop over to try it (even though she thinks she should) and was wondering if anyone new a recipe to try that is like it. Also wondering if anyone has tried them and if they are as good as they seem. Hopefully someone can help please.

I have never heard of this treat, but it is worth a try, huh? I mean, hot chocolate is inexpensive enough if it does not work out. I think I will try just putting a cup of HOT chocolate into the freezer and see what happens? oh, even better: here is the copy cat recipe from http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/recipe_views/views/109560 6 half-ounce pieces of a variety of your favorite chocolates 2 teaspoons storebought hot chocolate mix 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar 1 1/2 cups milk 3 cups ice Whipped cream Chocolate shavings preparation Chop the chocolate into small pieces and place it in the top of a double boiler over simmering water, stirring occasionally until melted. Add the cocoa and sugar, stirring constantly until thoroughly blended. Remove from heat and slowly add 1/2 cup of the milk and stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature. In a blender place the remaining cup of milk, the room temperature chocolate mixture, and the ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Pour into a giant goblet and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Enjoy with a spoon or a straw. . . .or both! Sweet Serendipity, 2004 by Stephen Bruce Universe Publishing
