Frozen Hot Chocolate

Today it has been a little bit hot and we have had a busy day. I think I am in need of this to cool down. I love hot chocolate and I also love frozen drinks. Why not combine the best of these two worlds, add a little peppermint (just for some Christmas cheer) and have something I have been craving. (Notice I didn't say healthy!)

Frozen Hot Chocolate

3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
1 package Hot Cocoa Mix (about 3 Tablespoons)
2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
⅓ cups Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
⅓ cups White Chocolate Chips
1-2 drops Spark Naturals Peppermint essential oil
12 ounces, fluid Can Evaporated Milk, Divided
4-½ cups Ice
Whipped Cream, To Taste
Mini Marshmallows, To Taste

Combine sugar, cocoa mix, and butter in the top of a double boiler that is set over gently boiling water. Stir often until melted and a smooth paste forms. Add semi-sweet & white chocolate chips; stir. When chips begin to melt, slowly stir in 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. Stir until smooth. Cool to room temperature.

Combine the chocolate base mixture, the remaining evaporated milk, Peppermint essential oil and ice in a blender (you can do this in batches) and cover. Blend until smooth. Pour into frosty glasses. Top each with whipped cream. Sprinkle with additional chopped chocolate chips & mini marshmallows, if desired.
