There comes a time during the summer where I begin to miss winter (this usually happens when its like 100 degrees). I miss being able to sleep with covers, snuggle under a blanket, and eat/drink the seasonal foods of winter. Hot chocolate is one of those foods.
I miss drinking that thick chocolaty milk with whipped cream that slowly melts and mixes in. Well if you long for this drink too but don’t want to drink a hot drink in 100 degree weather you can have it FROZEN!
It’s made with REAL chocolate! You can use whatever chocolate bars you want so if you’re a dark chocolate lover you can have your very own dark frozen hot chocolate.
And if drinking melted chocolate just isn’t enough, you also get little chocolate shaving on top!
Taking pictures of these was stressful. First, my background fell right on top of the drinks which completely destroy them and made a huge mess. Then when I was done and started to drink one Carly crawled up to me wanting a sip and ended up tipping the glass over onto the carpet. Rookie blogger and mommy mistakes. I learned my lessons.
