Can you freeze Frozen Hot Chocolate?
Frozen Hot Chocolate is tricky to freeze. You can make it 30 minutes before enjoying and just keep it in the freezer for 15-20 minutes until you are ready to serve. Too much time in the freezer, and it will freeze solid, making it hard to enjoy.
NYC Serendipity Frozen Hot Chocolate copycat recipe:
Whether you’ve tried the famous NYC Serendipity Frozen Hot Chocolate, or the one at DQ…I think we all can agree the best one is the one in front of you! No need to load the kids all up in the car or fly to the Big Apple to enjoy this chocolaty treat when you’ve got a power blender at home! I’m a big fan of my Blendtec (it’s the best!), and it whipped up this yummy treat in no time!
Toppings for Frozen Hot Chocolate:
Toppings are endless for this Frozen Hot Chocolate. We like to top with whipped cream (from a can or whipped at home) and chocolate shavings, but you could also use Homemade Hot Fudge, mini marshmallows, mallow bits, crushed candy canes, toffee chips or anything else your heart desires.
Homemade Whipped Cream:
You can use whipped cream from a can, or you can make homemade whipped cream. If you want to make the sweetened whip cream at home, it’s super easy. With a stand mixer or a hand mixer, whip 1 cup cold heavy cream, 2 tablespoons sugar (either granulated sugar or powdered sugar) and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Whip until you get stiff peaks. Spoon big dollops of the whipped cream over the top of the frozen hot chocolate.
