A couple of weekends ago, we went down to Illinois State University to visit my sister-in-law Sheri. As you remember, we have a lot in common so obviously she had some good stuff for us to eat. It was one of the hottest days of the year and she made Frozen Hot Chocolate.
She is the best.
Frozen Hot Chocolate
Adapted from Woman’s Day Kitchen
1 quart fat-free half & half
1 box (3.9 oz) instant chocolate pudding and pie filling (4-serving size)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Whisk half & half, pudding mix and cinnamon in a large bowl for about 2 minutes. Pour into a freezer safe bowl, cover and freeze at least 3 hours, or until frozen hard.
2. Put coffee mugs in freezer. Remove mixture from freezer; leave at room temperature 15 minutes, or until it can be cut into large cubes. Place in food processor; pulse until smooth, scraping down sides occasionally. Divide among chilled mugs. Top with whipped cream; sprinkle with cinnamon and serve. Serves 4.
Taste Test: This didn’t taste a lot like hot chocolate but it definitely had a great chocolatey flavor! Perfect for those hot summer nights. It was kind of a mix between a milkshake and pudding – it that makes any sense at all. It was really easy and a fun dessert to make!
Happy Hump Day!
