Serendipity 3, Part 3 Frozen Hot Chocolate
We can’t talk about Serendipity 3 without discussing Frozen Hot Chocolate. Its similar to a milk shake, but it doesn’t contain ice cream. More of a combination of high quality chocolates, blended with milk and ice. Served overflowing in a old fashioned sundea dish with whip cream and chocolate shavings. Serendipity uses a combination of fancy chocolates, and though they have a frozen Hot Chocolate mix you can buy and make at home, they’ve managed to keep their lips sealed in terms of what exactly is in the drink they’ve made famous. Rumor has it they wouldn’t even share the recipe with Ms. Jackie Kennedy Onasis.
So Paula Deen has a recipe, and so does Oprah, both pretty similar. So I’m going to take these and then add a little something extra: Godiva Liquor.
From Oprah.com Start with:
3 oz of high quality chocolate chopped into little pieces
2 teaspoons hot chocolate– I used dark hot chocolate by Land o Lakes
2 1/2 Tbsp Sugar
1 1/2 c milk
3 c ice
1 shot Godiva liquor (optional)
Melt Chocolate in a double boiler. Add Cocoa and Sugar. Remove from heat and add 1/2 c milk stirring until smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
In a blender pour 1 c milk, 3 cups ice, Godiva liquor and cool chocolate mixture. Blend until smooth. To serve Serendipity style, pour into a shallow sundae dish or goblet. Place Saucer underneath to catch slip over. Add whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
