It's just so hot here right now.
Most of the year I love Arizona, but August....well, not so much.
My 14 yo son broke his hand pretty badly this summer and required surgery,
so our usual summer activities of bowling, indoor trampolines, etc were OUT.
The kids and I were looking for new places to go to stay out of the heat.
We tried a new movie theater across town that actually has waiters
and serve you whatever your heart desires
WHILE you're watching a new release movie on the big screen.
I assumed that food would be second-rate, but seriously, it was awesome!
I had never heard of it before, but on the dessert menu was frozen hot chocolate.
Ohmygosh! It was so divine!!!
I had to try to replicate it at home.
If you're really up for a true taste comparison, try the original at
Arizona isn't their only location, so maybe there's one near YOU.
But in the meantime,
here's MY version of...
FROZEN HOT CHOCOLATE
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup regular milk (I use 2%)
1/4 cup Nutella
1/2 scoop vanilla ice cream
Thoroughly blend in small blender (ie Magic Bullet)
In 2 large cocoa mugs put 1 full scoop of vanilla ice cream in each.
Divide the blended mix between the two mugs.
Top with whipped topping and sprinkle with shaved chocolate.
This is my idea of heaven!
