Frozen Hot Chocolate

Today's post is short and sweet. 
If any of you have ever been to Serendipity 3 in Las Vegas or New York, then this post will make complete sense. For those of you that haven't... let me explain. Serendipity 3 is a restaurant that makes childhood food... in an extreme way. Triple Decker Grilled cheese... oh yes. Check it out:
Totally not gluten free. BUT they do have a gluten free menu. Here is Taylor posing enjoying her gluten free chicken dish she got: 
 Here is me looking over the menu:
 All of us ladies at Serendipity 3.
 One of their specialties is Frozen Hot Chocolate. It is exactly what it sounds like. If you like hot chocolate, you will love the frozen hot chocolate. A fancy way of serving a milkshake.
Here is a picture of my good friend Nikki taking a swig of the yummy chocolate:
And here is a picture of us the following night getting Frozen hot chocolate and frozen white chocolate to go at midnight. 
 It is the perfect thing to drink on a not so great day. So here you go my friends:
Frozen Hot Chocolate just like Serendipity 3... minus the whipped cream.
Recipe Adapted from: Picky Palate
2 cups whole milk
6 packets of hot chocolate mix (1.25 ounces)
4 cups ice
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup grated semi sweet chocolate
Note: Gluten free hot cocoa mix is easy to find. Any health food grocery store will have it. Most of them do not contain gluten anyway but may be processed on equipment that processes wheat products. So if you are in a bind you can make your own by mixing the following:
8 ounces good quality cocoa, 8 ounces sugar, 1 teaspoon pure vanilla powder.
Pour milk and hot chocolate packets into a blender and blend well until fully combined. 
Add ice and blend until ice is blended and it is a thick milkshake consistency.
Pour into 4 glasses. Top with whipped cream and shaved chocolate.
Makes 4 servings. Here is my not so pretty pictures. I did not take the time to make a fancy setting or put it in a fancy glass. But I figured you would appreciate the recipe anyway.
