Make it an occasion for chocolate lovers with this yummy, icy treat. For a stiffer consistency, freeze for 8 hours. Serve in frosted goblets for a pretty touch! —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia

    it is a cold hot chocolate that taste like it has been sitting aside and which someone forgot it. not very tasty, should have stopped when taken out of the pan. the hot cocoa should have not went in the freezer.

    Regarding the comment about Serendipity's frozen hot chocolate: I found a clone on both The Top Secret Recipe and Good Morning America websites for the Serendipity frozen hot chocolate recipe. It's different from this one.

    YUM! So fun. Thanks for sharing and like another user, my boys thought I'd brought home frosties from Wendy's too. Ha!

    Frozen Hot Chocolate is famous at Serendipity in New York City. I have always wanted to try it, so I was excited to see the recipe. Anyone able to comment on the taste similarities?

    Tastes like a frozen fast food drink. Why would anyone call it Hot Choc?

    It was a hit! The only thing I think I will do next time is not use 1% milk which is all we buy. I think it needed to be creamier. Likely the recommended 2% or even whole milk would be perfect.

    My family thought I'd taken a wendy's frostie and put it in my glasses!! Maybe I'll use chocolate milk(1%) next time.
