I found the recipe HERE (and changed a couple things) and, HELLO, it's amazing. Pretty sure I'll be making it every Sunday...

3 tbsp granulated sugar
3 tbsp hot cocoa mix
2 tbsp unsalted butter
1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cups white chocolate chips
12 ounces evaporated milk, divided
4 1/2 cups ice
whipped cream, to taste
mini marshmallows, to taste

combine sugar, cocoa mix, and butter in a pan over medium-low heat. stir often until just before it's melted and a smooth paste forms. add semi-sweet and white chocolate chips; stir. as chips melt, slowly stir in 1/2 cup of evaporated milk. stir until smooth. cool to room temp. combine chocolate base mixture, the remaining evaporated milk and ice in a blender (always put ice in first. I keep making that mistake). blend until smooth. pour into frosty glasses. top with whipped cream, marshmallows and chocolate chips, if desired. enjoy!
**I prefer a big dollop of Whipped Cream and Rainbow Sprinkles, plus a pretty straw!

Let me know if you try it, cause it's amazing!

I have never had it frozen but it looks and sounds so good. I really should steer clear of the desserts since thats pretty much all I ate for every meal for the past 5 days haha! I may have to make an exception! Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

I am actually not a hot chocolate fan : / I mean, I guess I like it, but I don't like hot drinks. And also, when I worked at a ballpark and it was cold everyone wanted hot chocolate and we had to make it by hand every time. I seriously started loathing hot chocolate and when people would tell me that's what they wanted, my usually cheery face would dissolve...haha! Horrible... But! This sounds really good! I probably won't get around to making it because it's a lot of work and I'm lazy (haha) but if I ever do, I will let you know and thank you for the recipe : ]

dag, you really know the hot buttons to press! omg Gentri, that looks out of this ever loving world! the 1st time i tried frozen hot chocolate was in NYC and i haven't found anything slightly as awesome since. this looks like it'd be a contender, thanks for the tasty share :) um, the added sprinkles really set the tone here, brilliant you! ♥
