Frozen Hot Chocolate

Frozen Hot Chocolate drink is the perfect refreshing drink for when you are craving chocolate. I love to sip it as a dessert or mid-afternoon pick me up. It is made with homemade chocolate milk powder and topped with homemade whipped topping and chocolate syrup

Raw Ingredients for Frozen Hot Chocolate


Chocolate: I used milk chocolate chips in this recipe.

Hot Cocoa Mix: You can use storebought cocoa mix, or make your own homemade chocolate milk powder to use!

Milk: Warm up the milk to about 110°F. The warm milk will help the chocolate not to seize.

Toppings: Make the drink even sweeter and more delicious by added whipped topping and chocolate syrup on top!

Adding Ingredients to Blender for Frozen Hot Chocolate Drink

Why is it Called Frozen Hot Chocolate?

How can something be hot and frozen at the same time? Well, this drink’s name is definitely an oxymoron. However, It makes sense when you break down the contents of the drink. You will blend ice with the hot cocoa mix, and that’s where we got the name.

  1. I live in AZ where the weather is hot hot 🥵 in the summer. Thanks for the frozen hot chocolate recipe!!! I will definitely use it!!

  2. Hi Amanda can u make something for those who are hypoglycemic 🤷‍♀️I love to try your frozen hot chocolate 🤪

  3. It’ll be interesting to try this. The recipe on the back of the hot chocolate mix I use has ice cream in it instead of the milk and sugar, so it will be fun (and tasty) to compare the two.
