B Serendipitous: Frrrozen Hot Chocolate

ser·en·dip·i·ty (srn-dp-t)
n. pl. ser·en·dip·i·ties
1. The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
2. The fact or occurrence of such discoveries.
3. An instance of making such a discovery.
 You've either seen the movie or visited in New York, New York. I used my Saturday to bring the special treat to me {melting in the desert.}

 Chop 6.5 oz of your favorite chocolate. I mixed milk with dark for variety.

Using a double boiler {or my creative college student low on cooking utensils way: glass bowl over a boiling pot of water.}

Once melted. Add teaspoon of hot cocoa mix, 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1/2 cup of milk. {mix well then take off to cool}

In the blender. Mix chocolate, 1 cup of milk, and 3 cups of ice. {Grown ups: try a bit of Bailey's.}

Top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. {Straw color open to preference.}

My biggest concern for this recipe was finding a goblet for presentation purposes. With no luck in my cupboards, I reached out to use a left over mason jar. Loved it more than the cookbook picture. {How serendipitous, don't you think?}
