Have you heard of frozen hot chocolate before? The first time I heard of it was one day on Oprah about 4 or 5 years ago. It was always in the back of my mind. It looked so delicious.
So I finally got around to it and found a recipe. It is sweet, creamy, has the flavor of hot chocolate, and the consistency of a smoothie, not a thick shake. Just another frozen treat for a cold winter day. Ha.
