Frozen Hot Chocolate

This is such a fantastic treat! I love LOVE lOvE it!! It is one of the recipes that Serendipity in NYC is famous for (you know the restaurant in the movie Serendipity with John Cusack?)! It is especially great around the holidays as a small, festive dessert.

6 1/2 oz pieces of chocolates
2 tsp store bought hot chocolate mix (it's fun to try the creative flavors like chocolate cinnamon or caramel de leche, or dark chocolate!)
1 1/2 Tbs sugar
1 1/2 C milk
3 C ice
whipped cream
chocolate shavings

chop chocolate into small pieces. Place in a double boiler over simmering water. Stir occasionally until melted. Add hot chocolate mix and sugar and stir until melted completely (this part takes a little while). Remove from heat and slowly add 1/2 C milk until smooth. Cool at room temp. In a blender, place remaining cup of milk, room temp chocolate mixture and ice. Blend on high speed until smooth and the consistency of a frozen daiquiri. Pour into giant goblet (holiday ones to make more festive) and top with whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
