On this stormy Saturday afternoon, there are books to read, projects to finish, and rooms to clean. First, however, a tall glass of frozen hot chocolate is waiting to be made and savored.
Ingredients for 2 Servings (approximate measurements)
- 1 tablespoon dark chocolate powder (I used 100% cacao, blend of natural and Dutch processed)
- small handful semi-sweet chocolate chips (or 2 semi-sweet baking chocolate squares, chopped)
- 1 cup soy milk
- 2 cups crushed ice
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Over low heat, stir chocolate chips until melted. The best thing to do is use a double boiler over simmering water but I just used a small pan over the stove. Add chocolate powder, cinnamon, and half of the soy milk, stirring constantly until pretty well blended. It doesn't have to be perfect because your blender will do the rest. Remove from heat. Add one cup of ice to blender, pour in chocolate awesomeness and rest of soy milk. Blend. Add more ice. Blend. If needed, add more ice. Serve and enjoy with a few chocolate chips on top and ground cinnamon if desired!
